Movie night for Teens: Oct 17th!
Horseback riding at Hidden Acres Therapeutic Riding Center in Naugatuck went really well! We loved the horses and the chance to learn about them and ride! A few young women may have found a new passion!
First Meeting for Teens
The first meeting for teens was held on April 5th at the Child Study Center. Following introductions we talked as a group about the purpose of the Initiative, and what kinds of activities we’d like to do together. Some things mentioned were science activities, learning computer coding, Geo-caching/Letterboxing, art classes, movie nights, baking and shopping for books and clothes. Everyone agreed dining out would be a great option anytime!
We discussed whether a new name for our Initiative would make sense, rather than Initiative for Girls and Women with autism spectrum disorders. Some of the ideas were:
- Puzzle Pieces
- Rainbow animals
- Stella Bellas
- La Belle E’toile
- Hoshi NoOnnanoko
- Project Grow
We will keep brainstorming and get input from the Leadership Working Group and the Advisory Board for the Initiative.
