Welcome to WWAACC

The Western Wisconsin Autism Advocacy & Consulting Center, Inc. (WWAACC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization developed by parents & family members of children with Autism Spectrum Disorders. WWAACC's mission is to empower, educate and support families, caregivers, educators, and service providers of children with ASD, and to provide resources and information in order for parents to make informed decisions regarding the needs of their child. While our organization focuses on families in the Western Wisconsin area, we hope our website may also be helpful to others looking for resources to benefit individuals with autism spectrum disorders.

Volunteer Support Parents

The Western Wisconsin Autism Advocacy & Consulting Center (WWAACC) is collaborating with Parent to Parent of Wisconsin to train parents of children with ASD (Autism, PDD, Asperger’s) to become support parents to other parents of children with ASD. Parents raising children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) can provide a unique kind of support that cannot come from any other source. Connecting with and receiving support from another parent who has been there can be one of the most empowering experiences for parents as they make their way through their journey.
