The Monroe Foundation for Autism was founded in 2009 and it is a 501(c) (3) tax exempt organization. We are dedicated to helping families affected by autism who do not qualify for government assistance by providing free autism social skills groups that help children gain confidence, work with peers, and help them learn appropriate social behavior. This cause is very close to my heart because of the struggles that my family went through when our son was diagnosed with autism. I decided to take action and create a local resource for families struggling with autism to turn to.
Our groups promote socialization and provide a platform where children can learn about the different social cues that children with autism often misread. Each group is taught by a certified teacher who holds a Master's degree in a related field.
Music social skills groups
The music socials skills groups are similiar to the social skills groups except for the fact that we incorporate the element of music in an attempt to provide an additional way for the children to express themselves.
In addition to our social skills groups we are also committed to helping our parents with any school related issues they may be dealing with.
8-1-15: Today was a bittersweet day for the foundation, I finally moved everything out our Bristol office today and although it was a sad day it is time for us to move on. God has other plans for the foundation and part of that plan is moving the foundation to Southampton where we will receive a donated space until we get back on our feet. We are still in dire need of donations so any help that you can give is greatly appreciated. Stay posted for future updates. Thank you for all of your support!
