Social Recreation Programs
In a state-wide survey done in March 2009, the Autism Society of California found that 53% of parents reported that their child had no friends. The lack of social skills was the number one concern of parents of children of all ages here in California. It’s a simple idea – people make friends with others with the same or similar interest. We are working hard to give our children, teens and adults a chance to socialize in a safe place with others that have the same interest. Thanks in part to a grant from The Community Foundation Serving Riverside and San Bernardino Counties, we are proud to offer these classes. Visit our Social Recreation page for a full listing of events.
Enforcement Awareness Initiative for 2011
We are proud to partner with the KVCR Autism Initiative to develop awareness material for the wonderful men and women who serve our communities in Law Enforcement.
Inland Empire Autism Transition Collaborative
Founded by the Autism Society, this group is composed of representatives from school districts, SELPAs, Universities, other governmental agencies, businesses, parents and individuals on the autism spectrum who are dedicated to finding employment and higher education options for adults and teens with disabilities.
Our families have enjoyed a day at a ranch, train rides on the Polar Express, camping and a day at the ballpark. These outings provide families with a safe environment that they can expose their child to a new experience. Look for more fun events coming in 2011!
We offer low-cost workshops on a variety of topics important to our autism community. Visit our workshop page for a current listing.
Local, State and National Advocacy
Though our work with the Alliance of California Autism Organizations (ACAO),the Inland Empire Autism Regional Taskforce, efforts through our National office and our relationships with local leaders, we continue to work for a brighter future for all of our families.
