The Austin Autism Treatment Forum is a group for members of the autism community who are interested in the dietary, nutritional, and bio-medical treatment of autism spectrum disorders, as well as other treatment approaches.

We are sponsored by the Autism Society of Greater Austin, and we usually have a speaker. We meet on the first Thursday of every month (except January and July), from 12:00 noon to 1:30 pm, at the Old Quarry Library.

All meetings are free and open to the public. No reservation or RSVP is ever necessary, but please leave your children at home, if possible.

Click on "More" then "Files" at the top of this screen for helpful resources. Forum members also receive frequent emails about autism treatment and local autism events and resources. Please join us!
