Autastic Avenues has been our family's greatest resource since our son's autism diagnosis, which sent us on that dizzying search through medical and therapy providers, support groups, and resources. First, I can't say enough good things about the talented, kind, and experienced crew, with backgrounds in ASHA-certified speech therapy, occupational therapy, and ABA therapy (among other things), who run the excellent weekly social group. My son looks forward to attending each week, and he is showing great progress in his abilities to interact socially, as well as increased self-confidence. As a practical matter, the group is also very affordably priced (in contrast to what I hear from parents whose children attend similar groups in other areas). That said, Autastic Avenues isn't just a weekly social group - they also generously provided advice on working with my son's school to ensure appropriate educational accommodations. This was a fairly challenging process in our case, and Autastic Avenues contributed timely and invaluable help through each step. We are very grateful to have found them and look forward to continuing to build skills, knowledge, understanding, connections, and friendships in the years to come.
