New autism support group starting in Coshocton

| June 14, 2021

A group of parents with more than 100 years of combined experience with autism have come together to start an autism support group for Coshocton County. ASK (Acceptance, Support, Knowledge) Autism will hold its first meeting on Wednesday, June 30 at 6 p.m. at Hopewell School in the picnic shelter. The playground will be open.

Everyone with an interest in autism is welcome. As parents, they have learned that one of the best things to do is to meet other families like theirs – the loneliness that comes with autism can be devastating and they don’t want anyone to feel like that.

These parents understand the joys and struggles that come with being a full time caregiver, a teacher or a therapist to someone with autism and want to share their experience with the hope that they can ease some of the burden to others. This will be a support group – everyone will be invited to share their story and their concerns and to ask questions and should feel safe that every question and concern is important. If there is an interest, the group will invite speakers on various topics to future meetings.

For more information, contact [email protected]. ASK Autism would like to thank the Coshocton County Board of DD, WTNS and the Beacon for their support of this important cause.
