Where do we start?
Every family who has received an autism diagnosis has asked this question.
Autism Society - The Heartland is here to help you get started on the right path.
We offer a variety of support groups in the KC metro area that can be found under the 'Events' menu above.
We have support groups currently in Johnson County, Wyandotte County, Eastern Jackson County and East Central Kansas along with Wichita. Our newest group is our Adult Social Group- we will be posting meeting dates and times on our events page.
NEW this year we have added Saturday Seminars that are going to be workshop type meetings to help our families and individuals with ASD. Keep an eye on our events page and eblasts,
The people who run and attend these groups have been down the path you are starting on and are great resouces for information and support. Our support groups offer time to network with other parents, gather information from our guest speakers and create a opportunity to meet new friends. It is also a safe environment to ask questions and get support. To find out more about the Support Groups call us at 913-706-0042 or email us at email@example.com
LENDING LIBRARY- Come out to our office and look at our Lending Library books that will help you on your journey. Many of the books have been donated by Autism Asperger Publishing Company.
Our Facebook page is a great place to interact with other families on the spectrum.
The 'Resources' menu above has a a wide variety of local, state, and national website links, and a products and software page with great ideas for therapeutic items like weighted blankets and software for self-help and therapy management.
