Sometimes it can feel like you are all alone on this autism journey, and there is no substitute for face-to-face connection when you need a friend.
Join us at one of our ASCV support groups for a time to share triumphs, frustrations and to be around others who get the highs and lows of raising a child/supporting an adult on the autism spectrum.
