A community of families of teens and young adults on the autism spectrum where self-advocacy and independence are promoted and encouraged.
We have a great group of autistic adults who mentor our youth and a variety of professionals who generously share their time and expertise. Monthly meetings to explore transition issues, as well as social events in the community, provide opportunities for parents and youth to establish a community of support. Join us as we learn about transition, share our experiences, celebrate our successes and support each other on the journey to independence.
We do not know the movies or the times until the week before, but we are trying to see an early afternoon showing. If you RSVP for this event, we will email everyone with the movie options and what the actual time is.
This event will vary in cost depending on how much you would like to spend. Each young person is responsible for paying for their own movie and food after. The movie costs about $3.50 per person and any other snacks they would like at the theater or after when we walk across the street to Freddy’s to get food. They can be picked up from Freddy’s about 7:30PM.
Join us for our monthly meetings in the East and West Valley, where Teens and Young Adults socialize, play games and hang out.
Fee for all teens and young adults is $5.00 – cash preferred. Snacks and drinks are provided. No charge for parents, caregivers, guests and professionals.
First-timers: Please download & complete the appropriate Participant Form for each attendee and bring them to the meeting.
