Autism Families Who Have Found US

After moving so much with the military, it was a godsend to have a support group to ask questions and get answers and know there is an amazing autism community with events for parents and kids. So helpful! It’s so comforting to know there are activities for just us- “those who get it”.
I’m forever grateful.

This is so important for my family’s journey. We have had so many amazing experiences because of this page. Egg hunts, beach nights, sleigh rides, roller skating and so much more!! The best part is the acceptance and the freedom to be you!! Our lives are full of new adventures and can’t wait to find the next one!!

This group has been a lifesaver to my family when my son was diagnosed with Autism. The group provides an abundance of information and resources, outing availabilities not only for your ASD child, the whole family, and also parent-only events. If you have a question, praise, or concern – post it. You get advice, love and support in return. Spectrum isn’t a group, it’s a Tribe! I have come to feel I am not alone in my family’s challenging journey. For that, I am extremely grateful!

Christy Parks

I would be lost without Suzi and what she has created for people touched by autism. She has so much positive and welcoming energy. She has created an encouraging and supportive online environment filled with vital resources. She works tirelessly to create events to fit EVERYONES needs and schedule. However, it’s more than events and resources, it’s a community, a family really. She’s done something amazing, something that can’t be replicated. Thank you!
