What we're about
AutismNE (Northeast Ohio Family Support for Autism) was established in May of 2003 on Yahoo Groups as a family forum where parents could get to know one another by email. Now AutismNE has remained a family forum in yahoo groups and now includes a meetup that started in 2013 and a Facebook group since 2009.
About our Meetup Group:
We're a group that meets both in person and online chat.
Most of our meetup get togethers are with other groups or organizations. There are some events that are hosted by AutismNE, Autism Personal Coach, Autism Society of Greater Cleveland and other organizations. (every post will tell you who is hosting the event.)
Autism Society of Greater Cleveland hosts a monthly Parent/ Professional Meeting with a Children's Social Skills Groups Program on the 2nd Tuesday of each month runs from Sept to May.
Autism Personal Coach hosts events for ages 14 to adult for individuals who have autism.
AutismNE also has an online parent/ family support and resource network for anyone who has loved ones with autism. We provide resources, message forums for support, family get togethers, Mom's Night Out and activities. AutismNE is free of charge.
Here is some very Important information for Physical Activities: (Must read disclosure information.)
"We're here to have fun, socialize and get exercise!"
But we need to let you know:
Being that this is simply a meetup group of parents and family in an effort to provide more activities; most of our meetups include fun physical activity and will require a "Parent or family member" or designated therapist to attend/ and or assist with your special needs children under the age of 18. Adults on the spectrum must know your own limitations for activities or have family member or an assistant attend/participate with you. We encourage all members to be safe and know your own or families limitations. Our group meetups cannot be held liable for any injuries from any of the events. By RSVPing to go to any of these meetups you "understand the exclusion" of our groups injury liability. Some of the facilities we attend have liability waivers and members will need to refer to that facilities policies as well.
Please feel free to call if you have any questions about AutismNE send an email to: AutismNE.OH@gmail.com
