Advocates for Autism

Mission Statement

Advocates for Autism is a student advocacy group for people on the autism spectrum. we try to stress the social aspect of Autism by examining its implications on society and education while stressing acceptance and understanding. The Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is our main focus, but we also advocate neurodiversity as we strive to understand other developmental disorders. We provide service opportunities through strong relationships with local organizations that work with the autistic population and other groups. In addition, we also work closely with the Kennedy Krieger Institute, and provide opportunities to volunteer in the Child Life and Therapeutic Department. AFA also raises awareness on campus through fun events. Finally, we invite different speakers (parents, therapists, doctors, scientists, and others) to talk about their perspective on ASD.

Meetings are generally on Wednesday at 6-7pm, with monthly service trips on weekend afternoons. For more information, please visit: or email us at
