After nearly a year-long hiatus, the Autism Support Group has resumed its monthly meetings. This group provides a much-needed space for parents and kids on the Autism Spectrum to come together, share experiences, and find support. This welcome return to these gatherings offers a time for connection and empowerment. 

Traditionally held at the Brent-Centreville Public Library, the group’s recent meeting on Saturday, February 24 marked a fresh start as they met at Family Connections. Led by Ms. Kaye Culp, each family had the opportunity to engage in meaningful discussions about their ideas, needs, and concerns, fostering a supportive environment where everyone’s voice is heard and valued.  

An integral part of the meeting was the participation of the kids in Read Across America activities. Ms. Ryan Thompson, one of the organizers, delighted the children by reading “Cat in the Hat.” The young attendees not only enjoyed the story but also engaged in creative activities like coloring and crafting their very own Cat in the Hat creations. Of course, no gathering would be complete without delicious snacks to enjoy together. 

Looking ahead, the Autism Support Group plans to continue its monthly meetings on Saturdays, offering a diverse range of speakers and, most importantly, a supportive community for all. Children are encouraged to attend, with activities tailored to their interests and needs provided during the meetings. 

A special event to mark on the calendar is the Easter Egg Hunt scheduled for Saturday, March 16, at Tabernacle Farms at 9:30 am. This fun-filled activity is open to kids and their families on the Autism Spectrum, but registration with Kaye Culp is required beforehand to ensure a smooth and enjoyable experience.

By coming together, sharing experiences, and offering support, the Autism Support Group is fostering a brighter and more inclusive future for Bibb County.
