Connection Circles are either virtual resource sharing through community-based FaceBook groups or in-person groups that determine their own meeting schedule during the school year.
Here are some examples of how Connection Circles might serve their communities:
- Share local resource information; provide a local contact person
- Autism awareness in their community
- Provide opportunities for family fun
- Some have informal meetings where parents can troubleshoot or connect
- Host educational speakers or more formal programs
- Provide childcare during parent meeting (Canadian Valley)
- Some Circles provide opportunities for teens or older members of the family to get engaged and connect (Edmond links up to Chicken N Pickle and Teen 2 Teen groups; Canadian Valley Connection Point; and Tulsa Young Adult Group)
All our Connection Circles are managed and supported by volunteers from the community.
