About Us

With monthly parent meetings, the "Spring Fling for Autism Awareness" Resource Fair, a summer picnic and pool party, the fall "Night of Stars" Dinner Dance, and numerous other activities, the CAC strives to support families affected by this devastating neurological disorder and the professionals who work with them.

Through its two divisions - the Chicago Southside Autism Support Group (CSASG) and the "A" Team Social and Recreational Club - CAC continues to work toward the fulfillment of its mission
