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!
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...
