What we're about
Welcome to LA Parents of Autistic Kids & Teens!
A group for parents, kids, and teens.
On the calendar you will find parent groups, playdates, and events. We will also cross-post from other meetups that pertain to our group's interest such as autism empowerment groups, art classes, and much more.
For older teens and adults on the spectrum we will also cross-post with LAND (Los Angeles Neurodiversity) LAND is an affiliate of ASAN, the Autistic Self Advocacy Network. LAND host monthly empowerment groups and other social meetups for autistic people.
For parents who may be "worried" that their child is on the spectrum and are still in a "wait and see" phase we have Playdate MeetUps geared toward teaching parents skills so they can work with their children and learn more about autism.
The message: Love people for who they are not who we want them to be.
The goal: Self-acceptance, self-love, and self-advocacy, starts with parents. I want us to be those parents.
