The mission of the Johnson County Autism Support Group, Inc. is to provide support to area families affected by autism.
A small group of parents held the first JCASG meeting in February 2005. The group originally formed to provide a resource for families affected by autism and financially assist children needing therapy. The group continues to do these things today, but have expanded efforts to include social events for families and funding of community programs. For more information, contact Sheila Benham at (317) 691-1196.
The Pro’s and Con’s”
As a child on the spectrum nears their 18th birthday, parents often wonder whether they should seek a guardianship over their child. The short answer to this question is, “It depends”. Our parent share meeting will help you navigate through this important decision as your child reaches adulthood.
First we will hear from Karly Sciortion-Poulter from The ARC of Indiana. Karly is a parent of a teenager on the spectrum and will share her professional knowledge about guardianship and alternatives to guardianship.
After Karly’s presentation, we will hear from a panel of parents about their first hand experience and decision to obtain guardianship or seek a different path.
