Family programming series

SIBS™ (Social Inclusion for Brothers and Sisters) - is a free program designed for 1st – 12th grade children with siblings diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Our monthly support group helps your child feel unique, as well as better understand and adapt to the challenges of ASD within the family. We offer clinic workshops and community outings that promote positivity and enrich the lives of children and their families.

Family Empowerment Series - Empowerment trainings are available to all parents, guardians and community sites. The Navigation Department organizes and facilitates trainings involving education, transitions, autism awareness, and related services. Community experts, Grant a Gift professionals, and parent mentors are invited to speak at trainings to support and enhance the overall knowledge of every parent/guardian, family, and client.

Sensory Friendly Events - We host periodic family outings throughout the year to help families living with autism feel more comfortable in public settings. Our fun-filled excursions provide a safe, supportive way to enjoy local attractions and help promote autism awareness throughout the community. Our outings are appropriate for all ages.
