SESSION INFO: « Back to all events
Did you know that ⅓ of people who receive an Autism Diagnosis are minimally verbal (which means they speak fewer than 30 or so words) or don’t speak at all. When an autistic person doesn’t speak, it’s typically known as non-speaking autism. You may also see it described as nonverbal autism. The term nonverbal isn’t entirely accurate, since it means “without words.”

Does this resonate with you? Do you wonder how this may impact your child’s emotional well-being and want to talk to others about it who have a similar situation? If so, join us to connect with other parents/family members like yourself to share the barriers, experiences and wisdom you may have gained. At FSI we bring parents together for support, empathy, understanding and brainstorming. This will be a safe and confidential space for families on a similar journey. We are better and stronger together.


After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.
