How we help
Raising a child with autism presents a unique set of challenges with regard to obtaining appropriate services, including adequate after school care and opportunities for social interaction.
We provide help for children and families with autism. Services include behavioral support, after school care, Saturday recreation and more. AFSNJ holds the largest gathering of autism families in NJ each year at the Annual Autism Beach Bash in Belmar.
Autism Beach Bash
The AFSNJ Annual Autism Beach Bash is held each summer on the 7th Ave. beach in Belmar, NJ and features a surf camp with Surfer’s Healing, a California based nonprofit specializing in working with children with special needs.
Due to restrictions brought on by the pandemic, the 2020 Autism Beach Bash will be a Virtual Event.
