Autism Society of Michigan Charity Profile

The mission of the Autism Society of Michigan (ASM) is to assure full participation and self determination in every aspect of life for each individual. We will realize this vision by opening avenues of self-advocacy and advocating on behalf of others in a way that values equity, respect, dignity and diversity in all communities.

The Vision Behind the Mission

Our mission statement says we will work to "assure full participation and self-determination in every aspect of life for each individual." People will interpret this to mean "inclusion." I think it is a mistake to be drawn into that conversation. These words mean something far more far reaching that just inclusion. Inclusion/integration is a teaching/implementation strategy; people focus on it as if it were an outcome. Our mission speaks to real outcomes for all people in a free society/in our communities. Unfortunately, today, there are segments of our society that are denied these outcomes. To talk about inclusion/integration is to miss the point.
