Bridging Gaps and Empowering Families

In a world where understanding and navigating the complex systems of care for individuals with autism can be overwhelming, AZA United's Family Support program stands as a beacon of hope and support. This invaluable program offers a lifeline to families, providing them with the necessary information, guidance, and community resources to better navigate the challenges they may face. Led by a dedicated team of professionals, the Family Support program has emerged as a pillar of support, enriching the lives of countless families in the autism and developmental disability community.


Addressing Common Concerns

The Family Support Team tackles a diverse range of concerns and questions daily. Among the most common inquiries are those related to obtaining a diagnosis, finding high quality services, becoming a parent provider, accessing programs through the Division of Developmental Disabilities (DDD) supports, and emotional support when parents just need someone to talk to. This diversity of concerns underscores the importance of the Family Support program, as it addresses the unique and often complex challenges that families in the autism community encounter.


Real-Life Example: Empowering Through Understanding

One powerful example illustrates the impact of the Family Support Team's intervention. A distressed mother contacted the team when she felt lost in her quest for intensive therapy for her daughter. Our team recommended the Clinical Family Coaching program, and through empathetic communication and sharing her own experiences as a parent, our Family Support Specialist was able to connect with the family on a personal level. This connection led the mother to embrace the suggested program and even implement some techniques immediately. The journey was not without obstacles, but with the team's dedication and collaborative efforts, the family eventually secured the referral they needed and benefitted tremendously from the program, exemplifying the commitment of the entire AZA United organization.


The Power of Teamwork

AZA United’s passion for supporting families has made it possible to invest in a team of dedicated Family Support Specialists who focus solely on helping families with whatever they need and supporting the larger local autism community.  We have an unwavering commitment to teamwork, individualized support, and the shared goal of empowering families. The alignment of purpose and the collective effort to create positive change is a driving force that propels AZA United forward.

The Family Support Services program offered by AZA United is more than just a resource; it is a lifeline for families navigating the intricate landscape of autism care. Through the dedication of the Family Support Team and the collaborative spirit of the organization, families find the guidance, understanding, and support they need to navigate their unique journey. In a world where the challenges can be overwhelming, the Family Support Services program stands as a beacon of hope, reminding us that together, we can make a meaningful difference in the lives of families in the autism community.
