We support individuals with disabilities, their families and the people with whom they interact to enhance community participation and quality of life.

Family Action Team

Our family action team develops new ways to engage families in our communities. We support families by:

  • Hosting trainings
  • Providing networking and support opportunities
  • Sharing statewide, family-centered resource guides

Statewide Resources

We collaborate with:

Networking and Support Groups

Autism Parent & Caregiver Support Group

We provide assistance to parents and caregivers of individuals with an autism spectrum disorder by building a network of support. Meetings allow parents to share experiences, discuss issues surrounding autism and offer advice. Parents and caregivers of individuals of all ages on the autism spectrum are welcome to join us at our monthly meeting.

We are excited to be offering child care!

Join us on Feb. 13, Mar. 13, April 10 and May 8 from 6 - 7 p.m. CST.

Sessions are held during the school year, approximately every three months, from 7 - 8:30 p.m. CST. No registration is necessary. See current offerings.
