Autism Society NWPA offers monthly FAMILY sensory and social opportunities for families to get together.  EVENT CALENDAR

Why should you attend?

The benefits of attending begin with the sharing between one parent to another.  Often times, just talking to someone who has “been there” can really help.  These events serve as opportunities for families to receive support and mentoring while building new relationships.  Structured community events not only provide ASD children a calm social environment, but also one in which the entire family may build relationships by including neurotypical siblings and encouraging interaction and support.

The monthly outings are designed to develop:  community awareness and interaction through structured community based experiences; and develop and maintain recreation and leisure skills.  The outings are opened to all families living with an autism spectrum disorder.

Family Support

As you gain knowledge and try to make sense of this disorder, please know that many of the people here have probably experience some or all of the emotions you may be going through at this time. We want to help!

If you would like to be linked with a parent who may have a child close in age to yours or who might have specific information about a therapy or particular topic of interest, please contact our office at (814) 455-3540. We will be happy to find someone for you to speak with who can be of assistance.  Often times, just talking to someone who has “been there” can really help.

Autism Society NWPA Facebook Support Group……

Every parent and person on the spectrum has so much to offer so a forum to help one another has been created. If you have a question, a suggestion for someone else’s question or just want to share a success or a struggle, this local on-line community is here to provide support. This is a closed group so post are only visable to members of the group. Please email: autismsociety@nwpaasa.org if you would like to join the group.

Friends & Pals Teen Club……

Friends & Pals Teen Club provides an opportunity for friendship, conversation, and FUN!  Teenagers need more independent social skills once they leave school for college or the job market, and our group gives teens on the autism spectrum an opportunity to utilize their social skills and practice them in a comfortable environment.

The club will be meeting on a monthly basis with our Club Chair, Albert  Boorady, and Facilitator, Warren Levy.  Our Teen Club Outings will continue in additional to the monthly club gatherings.  Upcoming Events
