Autism Today

Today, over 3,500,000 children and adults in the United States are diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) along with millions of individuals worldwide. Getting an ASD diagnosis can be frightening since there is currently no cure; however, knowing that there are options available can optimize one’s lifestyle. On average, ASD can cost families up to $60,000 a year, but there are programs to help alleviate the financial burden. Jay Nolan Community Services (JNCS) has provided support services for the past 40 years for children and adults with ASD and other developmental disabilities.

Individuals with ASD can optimize their potential to fulfill their life goals and dreams with the aid of community services, such as JNCS. Each person is entitled to live a quality life where they feel empowered, included, and embraced within their home and the community. Understanding that some individuals with autism need more assistance than others can help each person determine the degree of treatment essential to live a more stabilized lifestyle. Making personal changes and aiming to create positive improvements will help you live the life you want to live.
