"I have been attending ACN Support Group meetings and at the social events run by the support group. ACN Hornsby Support Group members have walked with me and my son through the last 4 years of major challenges and tears, triumphs and laughter and most importantly the group feels like family to me. My son , who has problems forming and maintaining friendships, now feels at ease at the social outings with the group. He feels so accepted by the families in our group and looks forward to attending each month's social outing".

The Autism Community Network was established by the father of a boy with autism in September of 2011. Others joined in and brought their skills.
We now have more than 1,100 families who come together on-line and 11 regions across Sydney to work on creating a society where people with autism and their families lead rich, full and rewarding lives.
