Meetings & Events


Monthly Support Meetings

Our support meetings are a wonderful way to gain information, and network and connect with other parents and professionals who are interested in learning more about autism and the joys and challenges it brings. All are welcome! Feel free to attend either or both meetings. Meetings alternate between an informal chat format, where parents and interested parties can discuss whatever is on their minds, and a speaker format, featuring area professionals presenting autism related topics. We hold meetings at locations in both York and in southern York. Check out our event calendar for specifics on upcoming meetings!

There will be no or little cost to teens and one parent who is required to accompany them. Events may include a baseball outing, bowling, movies, dinners, and much more!

TESTIMONIALS

"Being a part of Autism York is like being a part of a whole new family. We work together in support of meeting the needs of our children and ourselves".
Kris Kelly, Parent

“I find it comforting being around others who get how you feel and what you experience. I also love that I can walk away with some ideas for things that I have yet to try!”
Trista Geeting, Parent

“Before Autism York, we felt isolated, as though we were the only ones experiencing our types of problems. After attending an Autism York meeting, we realized that there are many others in our community with our same issues. It really helps when we are feeling overwhelmed to have a group where people understand and have experienced the same struggles.”
Stacey MacNeal, Parent

“Autism York allows us to enjoy going to the movies as a family, worry free. The events Autism York hosts are not just for our kids but for parents too. We can be around other families and share the same joys, concerns and tears! We have so many new friends plus now our son has friends too!”
Denette Ohl, Parent
