The RISE for Autism Story...

Cheryl Antlitz was inspired by her own journey through the unchartered seas of Autism. Driven by her commitment to this cause, Mrs. Antlitz founded ​RISE for Autism in 2011 to meet the growing need for Resources, Interventions, Supports, and Education for all individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), their families, and the community at large.  Prior to the establishment of this organization, she gathered a group of parents, providers, and other professionals to navigate these unknown waters.  She and the other founding members conducted a comprehensive review of resources, supports, and services available to the ASD community to determine gaps in Anne Arundel County and throughout the state.  These identified deficiencies served as the inspiration in the development of the RISE for Autism mission and vision.

​Since 2011, RISE has implemented several programs, informational resources, and services to those who fall on the Autism Spectrum. RISE has offered programs such as PALS, provided training and consultation to local school systems, and hosted year-round workshops and conferences on a variety of topics. RISE for Autism has also awarded over $95,000 in grant funding to local families to assist with financial burden of services and has partnered with AACPD to improve the safety of individuals in our area through address flagging, the Annual Safety Resource Fair, and BE SAFE the Movie Training.
