For the 32 schoolchildren who go bowling for an hour and a half every week, it's just a fun activity and a chance to hang out with other kids in an air-conditioned room. For their parents, it's a lifesaver. These kids and parents are part of Santa Clarita Autism Asperger Network and have been meeting all summer at the local bowling alley in a way to socialize and glean support for each other.
We are a group of parents and professionals interested in AS (and similar problems such as HFA, PDD-NOS, NLD, SPD and Hyperlexia). We meet monthly to discuss these issues, either for general discussions or discussions with invited experts.
Support group based in Costa Mesa CA.
