In March 2020, our lives changed in major ways that continue today. While we ease into a new phase of the COVID-19 pandemic, it has had a lasting impact on our safety, our health, and the way we live.
Few groups have been impacted in a deeper, more profound way than individuals with autism and their families. Whether you need financial assistance because of the pandemic, help finding a COVID-19 test, or support in getting the COVID-19 vaccine for your child with autism, Autism New Jersey is here to help.
