Pocono Autism Society is a non-profit support organization for families and professionals involved with Autism/Pervasive Developmental Disorders. We advocate for the general welfare of persons with autism and foster dialogue between parents and professionals to enhance diagnosis, therapy, education and recreation of persons with autism. We promote public awareness of the problems of persons with autism.
We now have 2 monthly meetings. An evening meeting early in the month at ESU and a daytime meeting late in the month in Brodheadsville. We meet during the months when school is in session, Sept - Dec and Feb - June. We skip January due to conflicts with the holidays.
Our evening meetings are scheduled for 7:00pm, on the first Tuesday of the month at East Stroudsburg University (ESU) in the University Center, Student Senate Chambers (click for directions). ESU students provide childcare, with the exception of May and June, in a nearby room. Our May and June meetings will be held at ESU in Lower Dansbury.
Between meetings discussions with local participants are welcome on the Yahoo! Group “poconoautism”.
Now we also have a group on Facebook due to popular request.
