What we're about
This group is for parents who have a child who is autistic, has ADHD, or has other neurodivergent traits. Keep reading below for more details!
My child is now an adult - will I fit in this group?
Yes! About half of our members are parents to individuals who are in their late teens, twenties, or older.
Do I have to live in Reno to join?
Nope! We have members from all over the country.
How does the group work?
We provide psycho-social education on topics like impulse control, handling bullying, what to do about meltdowns, sensory sensitivities, school and work success, disclosure, and self-advocacy.
Sometimes we also have special events, where guest speakers to share on specific topics.
What if I'm interested in other support?
We offer individual coaching and group services for teens and adults who are autistic or have ADHD. We are enrolling now for groups starting in the spring of 2022. We currently have a wait list for individual services but anticipate having at least some openings in the fall of 2022. You can learn more at facilitatejoy.com
Who started the group and why?
My name's Cady Stanton, and I am an Autism & ADHD Specialist and Executive Function Coach. I provide individual coaching and group services. My work focuses specifically on supporting individuals who are autistic, have ADHD, or have related neurodivergent traits.
I have presented on related topics at universities and agencies in both the US and UK, including Stanford, the University of Washington, and the California State Department of Vocational Rehabilitation. Here are a couple of recent local interviews related to COVID:
Television interview regarding the impact of COVID-19 on autistic youth
Radio interview regarding the challenges of online learning due to COVID-19
I have a strong commitment to making services accessible to as many individuals as possible. This group is part of the pro-bono support I offer.
