About Us

It Takes a village


Our Vision

Our Mission

To support persons on the autism spectrum, their families, caregivers, educators, other professionals and the public by providing opportunities for support and networking, education, training, and advocacy, along with promoting awareness and acceptance.

CUAN'S 2023 Ambassador

This year the Champaign Urbana Autism Network has chosen Scott Bennett as the 2023 Ambassador for the 12th annual CUAN Autism Walk and Resource Fair.


Scott was an Illinois Senator for the 52nd District, lawyer, and a farmer. However his favorite job was being Emma and Sam's dad and Stacy's husband.


Those who knew him were honored to call him a friend. He was funny, loyal, and genuinely cared for all the people he met. Scott was dedicated to helping autistic families through state policy. He understood the need for more disability legislation and was proud to be our voice in Springfield.

Sadly on December 9, 2022 our community lost a great friend and advocate. As our voice in Springfield, he had plans to focus on the Autism and disability legislature before he retired in 2024.

Please join us Saturday, April 15, 2023 from 11:30am-2:30pm at the Savoy Recreation Center at 402 Graham Drive in Savoy, IL to honor and remember Scott.

CUAN can Always count on
