Autism Puzzlethon™ is a unique fundraiser created by ASCONN to benefit the local autism community by providing financial support for programs and services. 


All funds raised in Connecticut, stay in Connecticut!


What is Puzzlethon™? It's just like a fundraising walk event, but with puzzles as the activity. Enlist your supporters and raise funds through our easy online fundraising site.  Then, gather your friends and family to join you for the Puzzlethon™ event! Any type of puzzle qualifies: jigsaw, crossword, sudoku, word search, so anyone from toddler to senior citizen can participate!


Why puzzles? Puzzles were chosen, not just because of their universal appeal across ability ranges, but also many persons on the spectrum are particularly skilled at puzzles.  For decades, the puzzle piece has been the symbol of the autism community, reflecting the complexity of the disability, as well as the difficulty in piecing together interventions that are as unique as each individual. Puzzlethon™ is designed to combine fundraising with an opportunity for everyone, including individuals with autism, to participate in a social activity thateveryone enjoys.
