Monthly support meetings
NAA-NT holds bi-monthly support group meetings to provide parents the opportunity to network with other parents in an informal setting. At these support meetings, parents can seek guidance, support and information, on a range of topics like ARDs and IEPs, therapies, therapy providers, doctors, state supported services and insurance coverage. Sometimes, parents join these meetings to have a cup of tea with a fellow parent on this journey, who understands their struggles. Meetings are hosted by parents of children with autism who have several years of experience on various issues and are open to families of children with autism of all ages.
Spanish support group meetings
These meetings are held monthly, and provide information and education to Spanish speaking families.
Monthly speaker meetings
Monthly speakers include experts on autism from the local community. Some of the topics we cover are speech, behavioral therapy, occupational therapy, functional medicine, insurance, trusts and guardianship, IEPs and IDEA and sibling advice.
Sibshop is a support group for siblings of children with autism. Sibshops provide the opportunity to meet other siblings who have brothers and sisters with autism. Siblings are encouraged to share the challenges and the positive side of having brothers and sisters living with a disability. Sibshops are lively, action-packed workshops that celebrate the many contributions made by brothers and sisters of kids with special needs. NAA-NT hosts monthly sibshop meetings that involve games, crafts and a snack and are open to siblings of children with autism between 6-10 years. To register for Sibship, fill in the registration form and send it to Rose Henke.
