ASDreams

ASDreams ended in April. It is seeking funding to be able to run in September.

Are you age 12-17 and on (or likely on) the Autism Spectrum? Then ASDreams is a place for you! 

ASDreams runs Monday evenings at CORE412 3 St SE, Medicine Hat - use the side door. The groups are 4:30-6:00 or 6:30-8:00. The groups are facilitated by Karen Sudom, with a dream team of dedicated CORE staff. ASDreamers are given opportunities to learn and practice Autism supports. This includes individuals with the former diagnosis of Asperger's. Skills include anxiety management, self regulation and social communication. Learning takes place through guided activities and free time. The group participates in an opening activity, a theme activity and skill building time for learning and practicing developmentally appropriate support strategies.

What makes this program unique? The tweens and teens are mentored by someone who really understands Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Karen is diagnosed with the condition and remembers the added pressures of being a teen with ASD. Also all three of her kids are teenagers so ASD teen issues are not just a memory.

ASDreams is a safe place for self discovery with others who understand.

Karen has a Pinterest board of activities and ideas she adapts for ASDreams.
