Our Mission

Our mission at ETS is to empower individuals on the autism spectrum and their families through inclusion, advocacy, and friendship throughout the state.

We are a 501(c) 3 non-profit serving New Mexico’s autistic community.

What We Do

At ETS, we aim to elevate individuals on the autism spectrum, their family members, educators, professionals, and community members through education, support, and advocacy both in person and virtually across New Mexico.

Our members can be found on-line during our monthly meet ups and, hopefully soon, at one of our many inclusive, educational, and fun events!

You can also find us on school boards, education task forces, state disability councils and championing for developmental disability advancements at the capital.

Happening This Month

-Elevate The Spectrum will be taking a short brake from our on-line groups this month as we hope and prepare for future meets and focus on important legislation.

**PLEASE READ: This survey is part of a collaboration between CYFD, UNM, All Faiths Children’s Advocacy Center, Families ASAP and La Casa Behavioral Health.  We are attempting to gather data on the need for respite services in the communities that we serve.  If you could take 5-10 minutes to complete this survey BEFORE March 11, your data will be used in creating strategies to better serve families with respite services.
