All About the Autism Groups

Thankfully,  we have several groups in Hampton Roads that create events for kids, tweens, teens and parents: Spectrum Parents, Autism Society, FACT (Home of CampGonnaWannaGoAgain) and many more.

Some groups focus on younger kids, while others focus on tweens and teens, and some focus on the parents too. In Spectrum Parents, I focus on both kids and parents.  AND, I am thoroughly enjoying myself!  So far we have gone Paddle Boarding, Beach Night, Ariel Yoga, Yoga, Park Days, Trampoline Park Meet-ups, Surfing, and Girls Night Out!!  Laughter is the best form of therapy! All parents need to take care of themselves or they cannot take care of EVERYTHING and EVERYONE ELSE.
