SPARC: May 2022
May is Mental Health Awareness Month, a subject that was often overlooked in the past when it came to autism and autism services. Thankfully, the autism community (the supporters and service providers) is starting to respond to the presence of mental health conditions (anxiety, depression, etc.) in autistic individuals. As this response grows, so will mental health services catered to autistic people.
The first quarter of the year is already wrapping up, and Spring is bringing a ton of new opportunities and services for SPARC. I am currently working on a fun little project (I lied, this is certainly NOT little) that should debut in June. If you follow SPARC’s Facebook page, you probably already know what it is.
As always, I will continue to offer a variety of trainings for companies and organizations interested in expanding their employees’ or families’ knowledge of autism, developmental delays, and addressing related behavioral concerns. I create customized trainings based on client needs and goals. If you wish to have one of my trainings for your staff or organization, send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Let’s continue to work together and build on SPARC’s Four A’s of Autism: Awareness, Acceptance, Affirmation, and Advocacy!
