Autism Resource List -- Reading, PA
New Story Schools prides itself on being a part of the vast and vibrant special education community in the areas that we serve. However, we know that, for most families, the need for services and support rarely ends with the school day. Luckily, most areas offer a lot of additional services for autism support.
For our families in the Reading, Pennsylvania area, here are just a few ideas for resources.
- The Autism Society of Berks County is an affiliate of the larger Autism Society of America and “provides opportunities, resources and support to those affected by autism.” Visit http://www.autismsocietyofberkscounty.org/ to learn more.
- The PEAL Center “works with families, youth and young adults with disabilities and special health care needs to help them understand their rights and advocate for themselves.” Visit https://www.pealcenter.org/ to learn more.
- Easter Seals Eastern Pennsylvania offers ABA therapy, autism diagnostic clinics, developmental screenings, summer camps, recreation, employment preparation and more for individuals with autism. Visit: https://www.easterseals.com/esep/our-programs/autism-asd-services/ to learn more.
- Keystone Human Services helps individuals with autism achieve employment goals, develop talents and live independently. Visit https://www.khs.org/what-we-do/autism-services/ to learn more.
Please note that New Story Schools is not affiliated with, nor do we endorse, these services, but simply provide this as a research resource.
