Rising Star Open Gym

Our play group was created to give our children with autism and their typical siblings a place where they could be free to be themselves, play, and get to know each other. Rising Star Academy generously allows us to use their facilities. The accommodations are wonderful; they include 3 trampolines (2 are in floor), a very large foam pit, padded floors, soft sided climbing structures and numerous toys.

*One parent is required to stay while the children are playing.

Autism McLean Fall Sports

Autism McLean is kicking off fall with mixed field games. Games include dodgeball, indoor wiffleball, and several others. There's no cost to sign-up and participate. Our friends at SSID will be there to help the kids in all of their activities.

  • When: Wednesday nights from 10/28/2015 - 12/2/2015, 7:30p - 8:30p

About the program:

Sports are open to any child who wants to be there. As long as they want to play, they are welcome to join us.

Our mission statement is simple: provide our kids the same experience as any other kid who plays a sport. This means, of course, practice, frustration, achievement, daydreaming, running, sharing, communicating, bonding, teamwork, turn taking, following directions and friendship.

Parents can help coach (which really means play and share the experience)

We look forward to seeing you there and watching our kids succeed!
