Guide to Autism Resources In Rochester

The rainbow infinity symbol.

Rochester, NY is known nationwide as a center for the Autism community. We are fortunate to have access to resources beyond what many experience. Even with so much available, it can be difficult to find and navigate services. Rochester Mom Collective hopes to support our neurodiverse families with our list of local resources. We encourage moms to get involved and reach out to others in the community to learn more.

The resources listed below mainly focus on supporting Autistic children, but many of them also expand their services to a variety of ages, neurodiversities, and disabilities. As an extra note, some services are private pay, but have financial assistance available to families. Always ask about this option if you need assistance.
