 50th Anniversary 1965 to 2015

 

Autism New Jersey 50th Anniversary Gala

September 2015

In 1965, a group of concerned parents, frustrated by a lack of programs and support from their local school districts, met to discuss ways to support their children and each other. That first parent support group was known as the Council of Schools for the Emotionally Disturbed (COSED). As its scope broadened and the definition of autism became more uniform, the agency decided to focus its energy upon autism, and changed its name to the Council of Schools and Agencies for Autistic Children (COSAC). More support groups were formed, and the organization began to bring together service providers around legislative and government issues. Today – now Autism New Jersey – plans are underway to celebrate and recognize the many milestones and progress we’ve made in the almost 5 decades since.
