Community Autism Resources provides free programs and services for children, teens and adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder and their families. During the pandemic we have continued to provide our services and supports virtually, as well as design and develop resources related to COVID-19 such as social stories, videos, visual systems and so much more! We’ve created fun weekly interactive activities such as Make it Monday, Try it Tuesday and Find it Friday, which have been archived on our website to give individuals and families a break from remote learning and telehealth, as well as the flexibility to participate at a time that is convenient for them! We have hosted a series of online paint events, virtual Zookeeper chats, Sip & Chat events for caregivers and Fun Friday events for teens and adults with ASD! In addition, the Gottschall Access Program (GAP), a 3-year Certificate Program at Bristol Community College and Peers® For Young Adults Social Skills Group for Young Adults with ASD, have continued to take place remotely during this time. We encourage you to check our website and Facebook page and website for complete details on all that we have been doing!
