We Help People And Families Affected By Autism
Support & Activities
You are not in this alone!
Autism Delaware’s mission is to help people and families affected by autism throughout Delaware. We believe that support and education move us toward that goal.
Our Support & Activities
We offer educational opportunities that help parents and caregivers learn about important topics, we host parent coffees, and have an online support group that helps to build peer networks. We hope that you will take advantage of some of the options that are available to you.
Visit our events calendar for a complete list of upcoming opportunities
Autism Delaware provides regular opportunities for parents, caregivers, individuals with autism, medical professionals, educators, and members of the community to hear directly from experts in the field of autism therapies, autism issues, and autism research.
Building social skills is an important part of the continuing development of both children and adults with autism. Autism Delaware provides a number of social and recreational opportunities, which is a great way to engage in social skill building, throughout the year.
For more opportunities in northern Delaware we offer:
Program for the Education and Enrichment of Relational Skills (PEERS)
PEERS is a 16-week social skills intervention for motivated teens/tweens in middle school or high school who are interested in learning ways to help make and keep friends. PEERS is an evidence-based, interactive program for young folks (ages 11-18) with Autism Spectrum Disorders.
For children 9-12, and teens 13-19, who can follow direction and have good communication skills, Lego club offers a unique, hands-on experience in a structured environment. For more information, contact Heidi Mizell in our Newark office at 302-224-6020.
Parent Online Support Group
This e-mail group is for parents, guardians or any family member who has a care-taking role of an individual with autism, Asperger’s Syndrome or PDD-NOS living in the State of Delaware. This will be a place to safely share your experiences and concerns. This group is set on private and only members can read and post to the group.
When it comes to participation in this group, please remember: Venting is healthy and something we all need to do it from time to time. Vent away if you must! However, bashing or slandering another member on the group for their choices in therapies, techniques or beliefs will not be allowed. We will warn anyone who violates this policy and remove them after a second incident.
Email attachments are not permitted in this group.
