Autism Empowerment is a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization based out of Vancouver, WA dedicated to enriching and empowering the lives of children, teens, adults and families within the Autism and Asperger communities. We serve all ages and abilities proactively, positively and professionally. 

The vision we work toward is an inclusive society that accepts and respects all youth and adults on the autism spectrum and empowers each person to reach his or her highest potential. We offer innovative and inspiring programs, trainings and services and opportunities for leadership and volunteerism for those within and supporting the Autism and Asperger community. 

Everyone on our Board of Directors is on the autism spectrum or closely related to someone who is. We are proactive autism allies that believe each one of us is an Ambassador for Acceptance of All Abilities in our home, in our family, in our community and in the world. 

Our Acceptance for All Abilities philosophy promotes inclusion. You will find us collaborating with and supporting other autism and cross-disability related organizations around the world. We also work with organizations that are not autism related in order to help their members better understand life on the autism spectrum. 

We serve all ages and abilities and promote Four Foundational Pillars of Positivity:

Accept - Enrich - Inspire – Empower
