This list is primarily for autism related questions, answers & support within the Macomb & St. Clair Counties of Michigan, but anyone is welcome to ask or answer questions on this list. We are a small, local parent volunteer organization, and have a website with a broader range of information and links located at http://www.macombasa.org.

The mission of the Macomb / St. Clair Chapter is to enhance the lives of persons and families affected by Autism. To accomplish this, resources will be used to promote awareness through education and advocacy.
The Macomb / St. Clair Chapter of The Autism Society of America serves the counties of Macomb and St. Clair, MI. We are a group of volunteer parents and professionals dedicated to improving the quality of life for individuals with autism in our community and beyond. We hold monthly meetings at St. Ephraim's church, publish a bi-monthly newsletter and hold frequent fundraisers to raise money for our autistic community. Such money is partially used for our annual "Summer Camp" held at Metro beach, Halloween & Christmas Parties, a summer picnic and for purchasing resource materials to distribute to the public & professionals to enhance Autism awareness.
