Who are we? Families with Autism Spectrum Disorders Inc. is a 501(c)(3), non-profit organization that fully funds the Families with ASD Autism support group, the founder of the annual Families with ASD Autism Expo, the author of the Autism Yellow Pages which is handed out free to families, and the founder of the first Autism Family Resource Center for the Greater Cincinnati, Northern Kentucky Area.
Why did we form this group? If you have a child, or loved one with ASD, you have special challenges. Things as simple as going to the grocery may seem impossible. Our group gives us an opportunity to be with others that share in our experiences and understand these challenges. We love our children and want to share ideas and ways to help them. Hopefully, our group will give us all some added strength and resources to help our children.
What is our Goal? One of our goals is to spread awareness and connect families. Each September we host the Families with ASD Autism Expo. This is a free event which helps families connect with local service providers that work with children and adults on the spectrum. We also host free monthly support group meetings for the whole family, and organize group outings and free holiday parties. It is much easier to attend a public event when you have those around you that understand. In November of 2008, we were proud to open the Families with ASD Autism Family Resource Center. Our center serves as a point of entry for families new and old to the diagnosis of autism. We just launched our "I am an Adult with Autism" campaign to help spread Autism Awareness for everyone on the spectrum, and to bring attention to a growing population.
When? Families with ASD meets monthly for casual family centered meetings. All meetings are for the entire family. Please click on the meeting icon to get the latest information on upcoming meetings, times and locations.
Future Plans? Families with ASD would like to expand our Autism Center into the the Luke Gregory Center for Autism. A place of our own that families can come to socialize, educate, get fit and network with other families touched by Autism. With our own property, Families with ASD will be investing into the future of our programs.
