ASGNO virtual programs.

The Autism Society of Greater New Orleans is dedicated to creating connections. To further this mission during the global crisis brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic, ASGNO is offering a variety of virtual programs and resources aimed to decrease feelings of isolation, boredom, and stress for the families in our area.

Our current programs include: a daytime and evening session of our Caregiver Support Group, Spanish Speaking Caregivers support group, Autistic  Professionals Support Group, Pre-Teen (9-12) Social group, and our Adult Social Group, and thanks to a partnership with the Autism Society of Cincinnati, we are excited to be able to offer the teens in the Greater New Orleans area an opportunity to participate in their Online Teen Time Hangouts!

Caregiver support group-Evening.

Meets the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 6:00 PM, CST

Facilitator: Stacy Badon

Caregivers of individuals with autism face many unique challenges. Life can seem very different and distant from the experiences of many other families. It can be possible to feel that there is no way that they can ask for or expect other people to understand their experiences. This support group is a place for caregivers to share experiences, get information and advice, make community connections, and research opportunities for services and provision for their children. The group is also a safe place for caregivers to have fun and talk about all of the ups and downs of parenting as well as the big and small issues.
