JOIN OUR COMMUNITY OF PARENTS
MEMBERSHIP IN FAMILY AUTISM NETWORK IS FREE!
As we all know as parents of children and young adults with autism, opportunities for socialization are few and far between. Our children have a hard time or lack of interest in socializing. Our goal is to provide these opportunities and as parents is our job to facilitate and take advantage of what is available as our children are often reluctant to participate
EVENTS AND PROGRAMS
We run social events geared towards varying age groups to help create social opportunities for all children and young adults on the autism spectrum.
We have community socials as well as targeted events for our moms, dad's FAN CLUB and our PEN PAL PROGRAM participants. We also do community outreach to educate and advocate for the special needs community. To help us bring programs and low cost events to these children and their families please click on "our goal" at the header of the page to find out how you can contribute. Every little bit helps!
Friendship is an essential part of mental well being, for children and adults. FAN gives both the population of those with autism as well as their parents the opportunity to connect with others that are part of their "tribe". There is a true comfort in being with those who understand you. Take the opportunity to join our community of parents and start new friendships today!
