WALLINGFORD-CONNECTICUT – Lois Rosenwald formed a non-profit organization to increase autism education and resources over two decades ago. She was raising an autistic child of her own at the time and felt her son was not getting enough help. As her child grew, so did the passion for informing and assisting with the education of the general public about autistic spectrum disorders.

Rosenwald is the executive director of Autism Services and Resources Connecticut.

“They weren’t getting the right intervention in school,”

She also added that you need the right diagnosis in order to get the proper intervention.

Over the years the organization has added new goals to aid adults on the autism spectrum. Most adults on the spectrum are not ready to enter the workforce or live on their own and need assistance with job training skills and placement as well as adult housing.

State Representative, Catherine Abercrombie, who represents portions of Berlin and Meriden, met Rosenwald shortly after she was elected. She said:

  “I wanted to take on a cause that could be something I could work on as a legislator,”

Today she is supporting advancements in education, training, housing and employment for those on the autism spectrum.
