I am a busy professional mom of an 11 year old son with Asperger Syndrome. He loves playing with other kids but has a difficult time making close friends because of some of the Aspergers social traits I'm sure we all know too well. I created this group mainly to help find kids for him to play with but it has grown into much more. This group is a place where we all "get it". The parents get it - no one looks at you sideways when your kids screams or starts crying suddenly. The kids get it - they don't treat the other kids like they're weird when no matter what. We have all types of families and all ages of kids - young ones all the way up to older teens - boys and girls. All are welcome!

We will:

  • Have frequent gatherings for the kids so they can make new friends and practice their social skills (and we parents can socialize too!)
  • Have larger kid events such as Hawaiian Falls or Ice Skating
  • Have adults only outings so we can make new friends and share stories and have fun (because we need our time too!)
  • Share information and ideas and develop a support system of other parents who understand what we're going through
  • Share information about lectures, classes and events, and other Autism related information from the community

The goal is to provide a supportive local network of friends and families facing the same challenges with our kids. Join us and let's make this group into something wonderful! Join our facebook group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/64519693553...
