A.S.F. is for families of highly functioning autistic children, otherwise known as Aspies.
Neuro - typical children and siblings are of course welcome as long as a spirit of acceptance is fostered. This group is inclusive but it is intended to provide an outlet for those families with children on the Spectrum whose focus is supporting one another and our children, while we embark on this life long journey. Playdates, social gatherings, mom's nights out, respite coop (potentially but would require group discussion and commitment) are the activities I forsee coming to fruition. As a homeschooling mom of a first grader and a two year old, I will occasionally put outings or events on the calendar geared toward the younger homeschool population. If others are interested in putting an event on the calendar please message me and I will change your member status to 'event organizer'. If you have suggestions or ideas please let me know and I will do my best to accommodate. If you are interested in being a Co-Organizer that option is also a possibility; again contact me and we can discuss this aspect. Thank you for choosing to participate. I appreciate everyone I've met already and look forward to meeting many more families.
