Kids with autism grow up to be adults with autism. Good thing AutismUp is still there for me and my mom!
I still need support and still have lots to learn. And I am not just going to "pick it up" by experience or by seeng it. I need explicit teachng and lots of guided practice. I need things to do and need to see people.
AutismUp is there to offer all that. Their new adult programs teach a lot of good skills, and give me a place to spend time "productively", as mom says. She doesn't like when I just watch Disney+ all day.
I can see friends I've made there over the years and make new ones.
But the people who do all the teaching and support have to get paid. And when we go into the community we need gas in the van. So AutismUp needs money. They say they need to raise $100,000 in KiteFlite. That's a LOT of money!
Please donate so I can keep going to classes, and so kids younger than me can still have all the things I enjoyed at AutismUp when I was younger.
