SPARK Sharing Perspectives and Autism Resources for our Kids is a parent support group for ASD families with kids ages birth – 5 years. This group was created by parents and for parents,as we have found other parents to be our greatest resource. We meet monthly to discuss topicsof our choosing pertaining to youngster development in the ASD world within this age range covering new diagnosis, infant/toddler issues, early intervention, and preschool. SPARK meets the last Thursday of every month currently at Akron Kid’s Hospital Considine Professional Bldg. from 6:00pm – 8:00pm (unless otherwise specified based on the speaker/topic). Dinner is provided, however we ask families to chip in a few dollars to help cover the costs.
