Autism Parents of S.E. Wisconsin welcomes all parents that have a child or children on the autism spectrum or believe their child is on the spectrum. We support each other through difficult times and celebrate each others successes. Because each child on the spectrum is so different we know that there is not one specific treatment plan that will work for everyone so our hope is that we can all share ideas that are working for your children and help other people that are looking for different options find what is all available to them. We meet for dinner a few times a year in various locations, without kids, and talk about whatever is on everyone's mind. Also we occasionally organize outing with our families. In-between outings we talk with each other using our private Discussion Board. All new members must be approved before joining to insure the privacy & safety of our members. If you have a child or children on the autism spectrum we invite you to join us for friendship, understanding, support & fun!
Meet our Co-Founders!
Camryn, Chloe & Kyle have all been diagnosed with PDD-NOS
How we started...
Dani & Stephanie met in late 2006 through a local moms website. We had both been looking for an autism support group in the area and were had not been able to find anything that worked with our schedules. We had our first group dinner on at the end of February 2007 and created a on-line forum so we all had a place to talk about things that were going on in our lives or questions we had. In April 2007 we started our monthly outings with our kids. We decided to expand our current discussion board in May of 2007. The group continued to grow by word of mouth and with the help of the Autism Society of Southeastern Wisconsin newsletter support group listing and in July of 2007 this website was created to help reach out to more families in the autism community.
