What we're about


When CASPAN began a few years ago, it was the hope of the organizers that those with autism, and related disorders, could form a strong community, share resources and attend social events. Today those hopes have become realities and as we continue to grow, we have redefined further who we are and those we are serving.

We are pleased to announce that CASPAN is now CASPAN/Urban Autism Solutions. This meet up site will continue to enjoy kind conversation and provide you with information about upcoming social events, but the membership will be restricted to teens and young adults with autism and related disorders.

To learn more about Urban Autism Solutions, and the work the nonprofit is doing to change outcomes for young adults with autism through an integrated community life that advances social and vocational opportunities, please visitwww.jmtf.org (http://www.jmtf.org/).

Dinner Out
Needs a date and time

Needs a location

Anyone interested in having dinner out together? I'm thinking that Buca DiBeppo in the city would be nice... but there are obviously oodles of options for dining in and around Chicago.

See a Movie!
Needs a date and time

Picture Show at Bloomingdale Court

Depending on what's available on the 2nd run, let's get together and see a Movie!

Documentary about how young people with autism deal with their daily lives

I am a grad student in broadcast at Northwestern U. I have to shoot a documentary for a class. I would love document how people with autism or asperger deal with their daily lives.

If someone is interested in participating in the project, please contact me by e-mail: [masked] or give me a call at (224)[masked]

I look forward to hearing from you.
Thank you very much,
