Support & Programs for the Autism Community
Autism Works Inc is a non-profit organization where dedicated parents, volunteers and staff come together to bring support and programs to families whose lives are affected by Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD).
Autism Works was founded in 2010 by a group of parents who realized there was a lack of support and programs available in the Northland and surrounding communities. With the help of founder Jamie Krisman, they decided to make a difference and created Autism Works. Our organization works closely with families and the local community to increase autism awareness and develop programs for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders.

We have been very pleased with the Social Group led by Sabrina VanBuskirk, a licensed and experienced therapist. The cost is very reasonable compared to other therapies my son has received. But not only does Autism Works offer several Social Groups for various ages, but they also offer events for the families. We have attended various parties, outings, parent seminars and lunch meetings. I highly recommend Autism Works.
Our whole family has enjoyed events such as fund raising Spaghetti dinners, bowling, family night and parent’s night out as well as other extra-curricular activities. Our son has made friends and we feel we have a community of support. The guest speakers are always great and we have learned from them how to be Advocates for our son.
We are very thankful for the social skills classes offered by Autism Works. In the brief time that our son has been involved in the social skills classes, he has begun to learn new and better ways of social interaction. The social skills class sessions provide the participants the opportunity to learn, and model, effective behavior in a real social setting.
