This group is open to any parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, siblings, therapists, students and anyone who is is any way affected by Autism. Whether your child is newly diagnosed and you feel overwhelmed, stressed and dont know where to turn, or youve been through this journey for years, we would love to see you at our meetings! I have put this group together to help parents share their stories, concerns and questions that maybe nobody else would be able to answer unless they are in the same situation, as well as being able to meet others who are on the same boat :) If you are new to the "autism world", you will get support, advice on the first steps that you should take, and even some great references. This group is to help us vent about our worries, problems and overall day to day obsticles raising kids with autism. Not only is this a great way to meet and ask questions, but its also a great reason to socialize with adults and take a little break from your every day responsibilities. (If you arent able to find care for your children during the duration of the meeting, feel free to bring them along!)
Every few months we will have a different guest speaker attending our meeting. Once I have finalized that the speaker will attend, I will post it on the meeting page.
**Absolutely no advertisement of any autism related therapy or business is allowed on our meetup page or at our meetings. Guest speakers are contacted and chosen by our administrators; emails about being a speaker to promote a business will be deleted**
