The Village
Autism Village






  • What it is: An app that identifies places that are staffed by understanding and helpful people – places where people with autism can feel safe and have fun. With the app, you can quickly find nearby places rated and reviewed by others in the autism community
  • It’s like Yelp or Trip Advisor for the autism community
  • Inspiration: The app was created by an autism , Topher Wurts. He was inspired by his 13-year-old son Kirby, who has been living with a classic autism diagnosis since he was 18 months old
  • With greater strength in numbers, we’ll better be able to convince businesses that the autism community is an audience that matters.
  • Our Call to Action: Be a part of the movement – download the app and ask your friends and to download it, too!
