Review for Howard County Autism Society Inc, Columbia, MD, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I sought out the Howard County Autism Society, Inc., in April 2018, after my adult daughter was diagnosed with autism. I was looking for information, support groups, guidance, outreach, and anything I needed to know to help her.

I met other parents with adult children who experienced similar issues: difficulty with interpreting social cues, low-frustration tolerance, difficulty with securing and maintaining employment, concern for independence and housing, low self-esteem and few friends.

With the help and support of the Howard County Autism Society, Inc., I offered my time to organize a social group for adults over the age of 24. I received their total support and encouragement in this endeavor. The group meets weekly at their headquarters. It is humbling to offer a program, have it publicized, and watch it grow and flourish.

I could not have done this or initiated this without the guidance, support, encouragement, information, care, concern and empathy I received from the Howard County Autism Society, Inc., and specifically Melissa Rosenberg, Director.
