Hello folks! I want to tell you about our local Autism Action Group. The Fredericksburg Region Autism Action Group iJust so you know, the Autism Action Groups are run by Commonwealth Autism Service. The action groups are run by parents, professionals and people on the spectrum to “help maximize ‘value added’ autism services by bringing together local providers.”

Our group meets once a month, but every quarter we do a meeting in the evening to allow for additional participation. We know that many folks are at work during the day and we want everyone to have the opportunity to join and make a difference.

Below is a video from one of our speakers, Lisa Worcester. Lisa is a licensed Occupational Therapist and the owner of Helping Hands Pediatric OT. She gave a great presentation on sensory integration challenges that is a must see for folks who are dealing with sensory issues.
