Pike Autism Support Services
The mission of Pike Autism Support Services is to empower, support and educate families and friends of individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) by assisting and encouraging parents to be informed participants in their child’s education and effective advocates on their behalf.
We are dedicated to providing support in addressing the social and emotional needs of family members who have been affected by ASD and we are committed to educating the community regarding this disorder by raising public, professional and governmental awareness of the challenges families face, in hopes that persons with ASD may lead a more fulfilling and independent life. We recognize that ASD is a lifelong condition that may require “Lifespan” supports for many persons on the spectrum.
We are committed to making our voices heard locally and regionally by collaboratively working with our Governmental agencies, that they may better understand our needs and how to address them.
We are committed to educating children and adults within the framework of current best practices and high expectations, always assuming intelligence.

We believe that “Raising Autism Awareness” opens doors to compassion, understanding, acceptance and respect.
It is our hope that persons on the spectrum enjoy a quality of life that provides them with such core life conditions as physical well-being, emotional well-being, interpersonal relations, social inclusion, personal growth, material well-being, self-determination, and individual rights.
We believe that the future of persons with Autism Spectrum Disorders should not be pre-determined by their diagnosis but rather by their great potential, allowing them every opportunity to develop that potential to its fullest, whatever that may be.
