Finding Inspiration in Every Turn
Great Society Inc. is a nonprofit organization with 501(c)(3) status based in Los Angeles, California. We conduct missions with a dedication to promoting safe, practical solutions and science-based treatments for the needs of individuals with Autism and their families through disseminating accurate, timely, and scientifically important information about Autism. We are also advocates of using scientific methods to guide treatment and combating unsubstantiated, inaccurate, and false information about Autism and its treatment.
Our work began in 2014, with children that have Autism in low-income communities in Eastern Europe. In 2019, we started supporting children in the Russian-speaking community in Los Angeles through partnerships and collaboration. In 2021, we further expanded our services to include every kid possible within the autism community.
We envision Great Society, Inc. to be dynamic and interactive, a highly visible and effective central point of quality resources and information for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD) and other developmental disabilities, their families, and other targeted key stakeholders.

Everyone deserves an excellent quality of life, and children who have autism are not an exemption. As a nonprofit organization, Great Society Inc. is dedicated to promoting solutions across the spectrum and throughout the lifespan of individuals with autism along with their families.
We aim to achieve this through advocacy and support. We also conduct information drives for increasing the understanding and acceptance of people with autism. We also support advanced research on the causes and better interventions for autism spectrum disorder and related conditions.
Through partnerships and collaboration, we are committed to:
Increasing global understanding and acceptance of people with autism
Being a catalyst for life-enhancing research breakthroughs
Increasing early childhood screening and timely interventions
Improving the transition to adulthood
Ensuring access to reliable information and services throughout the lifespan
Based on our research and experience, we are uniquely and privileged to reach a large population of children, youth, and adults to promote a global understanding and acceptance of people with autism.
In 2019, we started supporting children in the Russian-speaking community in Los Angeles through partnerships and collaboration.
For these communities, we:
Created close educational support that leads to positive outcomes for many children with the autism spectrum.
Provided spaces for the visual, physical, and tactile perception of surrounding objects.
Provided support for the kids dealing with ASD phobia that interferes with their daily lives, including frequent, intense, debilitating, and unusual fears.
Conducted various therapy sessions, including Art Therapy, ABA Therapy, Pet Therapy, Behavior Analysis, and Development of children's language skills
Held camps/extracurricular activities for the kids whose parents would like to take a personal break.
Arranged ASD appropriate food (foodbanks) for children and their families.
Our experience spread out across different communities that would also benefit from receiving full support and learning more about autism.
Since then, it has been our goal to work toward adopting higher standards of accountability for the care, education, and treatment of all individuals with autism in California. To better understand "What is Autism," what are the symptoms and levels..
SERVICES WE PROVIDE
Our primary goal is to help with the social adaptation of individuals who have autism through science-based therapies that include games, participating in sport and dance activities.
We also increase the community's (where these individuals belong) understanding and acceptance through education and seminars.
Through our global network, we also:
Conduct close educational support that leads to positive outcomes for many children on the autism spectrum.
Provide an environment suited for visual, physical, and tactile perception of surrounding objects
Provide support for kids with ASD phobia that interferes with their daily lives, including frequent, intense, debilitating, and unusual fears.
Teach Art Therapy, ABA Therapy, Pet Therapy, Behavior Analysis, and Development of children's language skills
Hold camps/extracurricular activities for the kids whose parents would like to take a personal break.
Provide ASD appropriate food (foodbanks) for children and their families.
Our plan of treatment is guided by science, and based on our recent studies; we focus our work on two types of social interaction challenges or cognitive dysfunction:
Kanner's Autism (referred to as severe autism): low IQ, antisocial behavior
Asperger's Syndrome (refereed as high function autism): high level of IQ, but can't perform simple stuff.
Most experts agree that there is no cure for autism; it is impossible to overcome autism yet fully. That is why we approach ASD in a special way that looks at the management of symptoms or development of skills and support, which includes behavioral, psychological, and educational therapy.
