Autism Families CONNECTicut

Autism Families CONNECTicut was founded in January 2010 by a group of parents, grandparents and family members who recognized that there were limited weekend recreational and social activities specifically targeted to children on the autism spectrum in Connecticut. Initially, to fill that gap, the focus was on providing programming for children on the spectrum, ages 5-12. While still the focus, programming has since expanded to include preschoolers ages 3-5, teens ages 13-19, and young adults ages 20-29 on the autism spectrum, as well as siblings and parents when appropriate.
Programs are locally based, high quality, low cost, accessible to families and run by professionals. Every program is held in a safe, non-judgmental environment, designed to encourage children, teens, and young adults who attend to have fun, get active and make friends. Most programs are primarily on the weekends and are multi-week long.

Common reasons to call ECCP® include things like supporting children with challenging behaviors, creating new routines or improving transitions. This strengths-based service focuses on helping the teaching team, so they can best support the classroom’s needs. ECCP® is best when used early, before more challenging behaviors occur.

ECCP also offers programs for family childcare providers or in the child's home.
