Spectrum Parents Events
Come Out. Make Friends. Build Your Tribe.
We Keep Pretty Busy
What’s Our Deal Anyway?
Our Mission is to make the world a better place. Spectrum Parents Events is a nonprofit support group for autism families. We do everyday normal activities to over the top epic events, as well as share local resources, workshops, scholarships, support, retreats, free & affordable activities for everyone in the family.
Our Incredible Team
Suzi is a mom, wife, daughter, sister…she is an amateur photographer, advocate, Realtor, Founder of Spectrum Parents, a former Special Ed Teacher, and Social Worker. Her husband and she have two sons with special needs. One has ADHD with anxiety and our youngest has Autism.
Giving back to families with kids on the Autism Spectrum Parents is her passion. You do not need to be alone on this journey.
Alicia has been giving to the community in every way imaginable. She’s a mom to three kids on the spectrum, teaches special ed, and is on our board. She loves adventures and has an incredible talent of taking people off the ledge. You’ve seen her on retreats, at our Easter Egg Hunt, Santa Party, Beach Nights, Autism On Ice, and all over VA, NC, and TN.
Need validation? Go see Karin. She is an amazing friend, volunteer, and MOM. Karin has been volunteering in the community for over 20 years & is always willing to step up and go the extra mile. Personally she is a wife, mom, health enthusiast, nature, lover, and giver. She has an adult son on the Autism Spectrum taking college classes so it goes without saying that she is an incredible resource to new and not so new parents.
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!
