Parent support group/ sensory jump hour

We are so thankful to North Middle School Rapid City Area Schools District for their generous donation to ASBH! During April the staff purchased autism awareness shirts and wore them with jeans as a fundraiser for us. They also cut out 600 puzzle pieces for the staff and students to decorate and write information about autism. Each morning their announcements contained a fact about autism. This is being supportive!! This is educating the next generation!! This is teaching them how to advocate for inclusion!! This is everything we hope to see in all our schools! Our programs are successful because of the support of our community partners. THANK YOU!!

The Autism Society continues to mourn the lives lost on Friday in Newtown, Connecticut. We join the nation as we keep our collective attention focused on those directly impacted by this tragedy.

In the nation’s rush to understand the reasoning for such an awful occurrence, the conversation evolved to include the alleged shooter’s possible diagnosis on the autism spectrum. The Autism Society feels it is imperative to remove autism from this tragic story. Race, ethnicity, gender, and sexual orientation are seldom, if ever, linked to the actions of an individual in a causal relationship. It is imperative that developmental disorders and disabilities be treated in the same vein.
