Hi, I’m Anna Curtis, the owner and founder of Independent of Autism located in Carroll County, MD.  My nonprofit serves everyone including newly diagnosed families, established families, grandparents, and siblings.  We want the individuals with serve with autism to one day be Independent of their Autism.  

IOA specializes in social skills training, groups, and community outings.  We hope to expand our programming to include workshops, seminars, and more!

Moreover, we are a small, family based nonprofit who depends on the community for support.  We currently serve over 150 families all over the USA.  We cannot wait to expand to cover the world! 

IOA would appreciate any help.  Please leave me your contact information so we can send you a thank you note. Smiles, Autism Anna

IOA would really like to assist several young children and their families who would greatly benefit from our social groups. The social groups are $75 for a 6 week session. Any donation amount will provide a wonderful social opportunity to these fantastic children. Our children's social groups consist of lots of social activities including time outside, arts & crafts, games, tactile fun, and much more. Each activity encourages each child to practice his/her social skills and to develop awareness of others. Many individuals with autism lack social skills we take for granted every day, i.e. eye contact, back and forth of a conversation, space proximity, sharing, and more. Any donation amount would be greatly appreciated. THANK YOU! Hugs, Anna & Jimmy

IOA would really like to assist several teen families who would greatly benefit from our social groups. The social groups are $100 for a 6 week session. Any donation amount will provide a wonderful social opportunity to these teens. Our teen social groups consist of library/classroom time brushing up on our social skills then an opportunity to practice them within the community at outings. Many individuals with autism lack social skills we take for granted every day, i.e. eye contact, back and forth of a conversation, and more. Any donation amount would be greatly appreciated.

It's been a year after I graduated...Jimmy is another year old (10.) We have expanded our social groups program to ages 6 and up. We are looking to add another social group for little ones under 6. Additionally, it is soon conference season. Consider helping myself/IOA get the next social group under way or help me get to a conference this fall. Any tax deductible donation is greatly appreciated. Thank you for your continued support and love.
