This group, for individuals ages 18 and older, provides social opportunities for adults with high-functioning Autism or Asperger’s Syndrome. Outings include restaurants, bowling, movies, on-site gatherings, and meals at the homes of other members. Supper Club meets every other Thursday evening. There is a $5 fee for each session; sessions run approximately 3-1/2 months.
Our afterschool program provides a structured environment for students ages 8-17 from 2:30-6:30 p.m. on school days. Children work on social skills in groups of five or fewer, and two community outings are offered each week. The children participate in dance classes and art projects with qualified staff. Students can also do homework and enjoy leisure time.
In the summer, this program is available Monday-Friday 8:30 a.m.-2 p.m. for about 7-8 weeks. Participants enjoy on-site and community activities.

Children enjoy arts & crafts, play on the Wii, and watch movies. We periodically offer special activities such as bowling outings. Snacks are provided.
The Hangout is open one Saturday night each month from 5:30 to 9:30 p.m. This program, which is supported by the local chapter, accepts individuals ages 3-22 who are on the autism spectrum. Siblings are also welcome to join in on the fun! Cost: $10 per child.
