RESOURCE CENTER SERVICES
We continue to develop services for individuals on the autism spectrum who live in the Southtowns. Below is an overview of our current offerings.
The service is held one Saturday a month. It includes activities onsite such as movies, art, music, creative movement and/or games for a three hour session.
Social Skills Groups
This group is held twice a month on a weekday evening. This program is designed to enhance the individual’s social abilities needed to successfully participate in leisure, educational, and vocational settings. The program is also aimed at helping individuals boost their self-confidence and develop relationships both within the group and beyond. This service is funded by a grant and can serve individuals on the autism spectrum ages 5-21 who live in Erie or Niagara County.
Adult Asperger’s Group
Our Adult Asperger’s/ High Functioning Autism group meets the first Wednesday of each month from 5:00 – 6:00 pm. The mission of this group is to offer a safe and comfortable environment where people can meet new people, learn something new, share experiences if they choose, offer support, or just come to listen. Email Aubrey to RSVP or call 716-631-5777 ext. 520.
Parent Support Group
These groups are held once a month to provide parents of children on the autism spectrum with an opportunity to support one another and share concerns as well as resources. A facilitator will be present at each group. Held every second Thursday of the month. Email Karen to RSVP or call 716-992-0131
We provide workshops typically once a month on a variety of topics to families and the general community. These are held on a weekday evening or Saturday afternoon, depending on preference. See our upcoming workshops on our events page.
Kyle Reid Resource Library
As many parents already know, there is a plethora of sensory resources on the market. However, for a child with autism, it is a trial and error process before you know which products are right for your child. We are more than happy to give you a tour of the library and explain to you the purpose and function of some of the new and popular sensory products that are available. If you see anything you like, you can take it home to try it out. We also have a growing collection of DVDs, books, magazines and periodicals for you to borrow as well.
Please email us to let us know what services you would be interested in.
