Each year Success on the Spectrum or SOS holds an autism festival free of charge for autism families in the community. Here, autistic children and their families can come out for a day of fun in a judgment-free environment.
A lot of work goes into our community outreach programs but it’s worth it to us that families can get out of the house and see their child have a better outing than the last time or to see him try a new thing and enjoy it with his siblings and family by his side. It’s heartwarming to us to see how many people volunteered their time and services to come together to recognize these families.
If we expect our children to mature and learn coping mechanisms, they need to practice. It’s our desire that they grow into self-sufficient adults someday. They cannot avoid noisy places altogether. The festival is a great place to practice AND have fun.
Success on the Spectrum provides ABA therapy for children and caregiver training for parents. Our goal is to help children develop self-control, independence and a positive self-concept.
Our long-term objective is to teach functional skills that help our clients become fulfilled adults who can live in and navigate the modern world.
