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.
Behavior Support Services
Our behavior support services involve providing family training,1 to1 interventions assessments, program monitoring while implementing the behavior modification plan developed by the BSC. The BSC will work very closely with the TSS or PCA assigned to the case to ensure that needs and behavioral goals are being met.
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.
We accept the ODP waiver and Cigna Healthcare for our behavior support services.
Our social skills groups are still free! Please follow us on Facebook to stay updated on our events!
