SAN DIEGO, Oct. 26 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The San Diego County Chapter of the Autism Society of America (SDASA), together with TACA and the Autism Society of America, are offering information and assistance resources to anyone affected by an autism spectrum disorder and who has been impacted by the San Diego County wildfires.

"Offers of support for fire victims from both the local and national autism community have been remarkable," said SDASA president-elect Cherri Cary. "We have resources available for displaced families."

Evacuees are urged to contact the SDASA at (858) 715-0678 or e-mail them at info@sd-autism.org. The chapter will identify specific needs and provide assistance as they are able, working with the generous members throughout the county, state and nation.

Phone calls and e-mail contacts will be returned as quickly as possible. Volunteers will respond within 24-36 hours. Concerns of an urgent or emergency nature should be directed to the county 211 or 911 call centers.

"ASA joins with its members all over the nation to offer its support of all citizens in the California counties affected by the wildfires," said Lee Grossman, President and CEO of the Autism Society of America. "As with other national disasters, we continue to be so proud of our chapters and their rapid, caring response to families living with autism."

ASA is the largest, oldest member organization dedicated to autism in the world. Together with 190,000 members and supporters across 206 chapters in the U.S., ASA's mission is to improve the lives of all affected by autism-- individuals with autism, their families and the professionals with whom they interact.
