In lieu of the fall support group meeting, the Autism Society NWPA is offering a 3 part mini-series on Developing Strong IEP's and Workingwith School Teams. more information
Autism Society NWPA also offers monthly sensory and social opportunities for families to get together. more information
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.
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.
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.
