ASI exists to ensure that everyone in Indiana affected by autism gets the services they deserve.
The Autism Society of Indiana (ASI) exists to ensure that every individual and every family affected by autism in the State of Indiana receives the high-quality services they deserve.
To make our services more readily available across the entire state of Indiana over the next 5 years.
ASI is dedicated to ensuring that every program, service, or support provided to our community is Person-Centered, and focused on Personal Outcome Measures (POM). Specifically, all of our work is based on the following core values:
Respect: We respect and value the uniqueness of all individuals within the autism spectrum. When provided the opportunity, each individual can make a unique contribution to his/her family, community, and society. The individual is the priority, rather than any philosophical stance.
Empowerment and Support: We empower and support individuals on the autism spectrum (and those who advocate for them) to achieve through self-advocacy, greater independence, and integration in all facets of community life.
Individuality: We demonstrate this through the provision of services and supports in an individualized manner that shows respect for individual dignity, personal preferences, cultural differences, as well as the unique strengths, resources, priorities, concerns, and abilities of individuals and their families.
Equity: We promote fair and equitable access to supports, opportunities, and services for all individuals on the autism spectrum. We strive for equity and fairness in decision-making and in our relationships with others.
Integrity and Accountability: We act with honesty, integrity, and openness in all dealings, adhere to high ethical and performance standards, and manage resources in a responsible and prudent manner.
Collaboration: We encourage and promote cooperative relationships among families, communities, schools, government agencies, organizations, professionals, and others involved in the lives of people within the autism spectrum. We value relationships founded on honesty, integrity, and mutual respect.
