Coffee, Tea & Autism



Event Type(s): Health
Organization: Autism Society of Greater Akron
Description: Coffee, Tea and Autism provides an informal forum for discussion and information sharing among anyone impacted by autism. Facilitators are volunteers who have first-hand knowledge of living the autism journey and have completed their training in active listening skills, group dynamics and accessing resources.

These support groups can …

-Connect people with similar experiences
-Provide new resources, ideas and suggestions
-Encourage you throughout your journey
-Celebrate successes no matter how small
-Let you know you are not alone
-Allow understanding with no judgement

Sometimes the best support and information comes from others living the same journey.




Meeting Dates: 3rd Friday of Every Month
Meeting Time: 7:00pm
Location: Panera Bread · 4338 Kent Road, Stow OH 44224

Peer Facilitator: Mary Richards

A little about Mary ... I am Mary Richards. I am a single woman raising an autistic grandchild. I have raised four children to adulthood already. I have worked in audit and finance and am currently working as the Chief Advocate for Tommy. I have experience leading groups of all sizes and ages both through my work history and my volunteer work with Girl Scouts and my church.

Like you I experience the joys and challenges of raising a special needs child. No two of our children are alike, but we have a similar journey. Tommy is considered on the mild to moderate end of the autism spectrum. I have concerns about his being able to live independently, making friends, being comfortable in the world at large. I want to help him have an enviable life full of confidence and joy.
