Programs and support found throughout the AutismUp organization have made a world of difference for our family. Among the most important, it has given us a place to truly "belong" following a diagnosis that created incredible isolation.
AutismUp has given us a place to explore new offerings and it has given us a place to teach others about autism. When we attend a family meetup or program through AutismUp, we know we'll be accepted as we are, and that considerations have been implemented so that our children will find success.
Programs like "iCan Bike", which AutismUp brings to our community have assisted over 230 families in a skill most kids learn and take for granted. Our "Healthy Hikes" open up opportunities for our families to get out and about and enjoy our lovely park areas. Specialized programs like "Exploring Sensations" and "Girl Power" have helped our children to have scheduled events to look forward to, when many times, typical programs don't offer sufficient support for the children's success.
No family should face the isolation that the diagnosis of autism can deliver.
As we continue to grow in our ability to reach more and more families, we know how important it is to not try to do it alone. Please join us in raising the level of support to families facing autism in our community. There is so much ability that just needs to be harnessed, and we can do it together!
