BUFFALO, NY — Lau­ra Moeller, a sea­soned pro­fes­sion­al in school coun­sel­ing with advanced edu­ca­tion in Men­tal Health Coun­sel­ing and School Coun­sel­ing is tak­ing the lead as Pres­i­dent of Buf­fa­lo Autism Project. Buf­fa­lo Autism Project is a 510©(3) whose mis­sion is to pro­vide the West­ern New York com­mu­ni­ty with an abun­dance of qual­i­ty infor­ma­tion.

Moeller’s jour­ney began when she start­ed work­ing with chil­dren on the Autism Spec­trum and soon dis­cov­ered strik­ing sim­i­lar­i­ties between her clients and her own son, who she also lat­er real­ized was also on the Spec­trum.

Moti­vat­ed by her per­son­al expe­ri­ence, Moeller aims to fill the void in the com­mu­ni­ty by pro­vid­ing sup­port and resources to par­ents who are strug­gling with an autism diag­no­sis, as well as indi­vid­u­als seek­ing accep­tance and under­stand­ing in the Autism com­mu­ni­ty.

The mis­sion of the Buf­fa­lo Autism Project is clear: to equip the West­ern New York Com­mu­ni­ty with a wealth of high-qual­i­ty infor­ma­tion, resources, and events focused on best prac­tices for Autism Spec­trum Dis­or­der. By doing so, Moeller and her team hope to fos­ter hope, aware­ness, and accep­tance with­in the com­mu­ni­ty.

As an orga­ni­za­tion, the Buf­fa­lo Autism Project strives to achieve the fol­low­ing goals:

1. Pro­vide the West­ern New York Com­mu­ni­ty with ample access to top-notch infor­ma­tion and resources.
2. Pro­mote hope, aware­ness, and accep­tance for indi­vid­u­als affect­ed by autism spec­trum dis­or­der.
3. Raise pub­lic and pro­fes­sion­al aware­ness of autism spec­trum dis­or­ders.
4. Empow­er and edu­cate those with­in the autism com­mu­ni­ty.
5. Fos­ter col­lab­o­ra­tive part­ner­ships with oth­er orga­ni­za­tions.
6. Offer grants and schol­ar­ships to sup­port the autism com­mu­ni­ty.
7. Solic­it and receive funds to ful­fill the above-men­tioned objec­tives.

Under Moeller’s lead­er­ship, the Buf­fa­lo Autism Project seeks to make a last­ing impact on the lives of indi­vid­u­als with autism and their fam­i­lies. With a strong com­mit­ment to com­mu­ni­ty engage­ment and col­lab­o­ra­tion, Moeller is deter­mined to improve the qual­i­ty of life for those affect­ed by autism in Buf­fa­lo and beyond.
