“The A Team Pottstown” is a parent/caregiver, educator, professional group providing support for families dealing with Autism Spectrum Disorders. They meet at the Pottstown branch of the Freedom Valley YMCA on the 1st Thursday of the month at 6:30pm. They have open discussions and guest speakers. Whether your family has a new diagnosis or you’re more experienced, all are welcome! The Freedom Valley YMCA is located at 724 N. Adams Street, Pottstown, PA 19464.
You can also visit their Facebook page to meet folks in this community and join in the discussions. Right now they are taking a poll about whether families would be interested in attending the occasional sensory friendly, family friendly film at the new Carmike 12 at Upland Square Shopping Center in Pottsgrove. Sensory friendly means there’s lower volume and the lights are up a bit so it’s not so dark for the kids. Carmike is open to it if there is enough interest. Seems like a reasonable accommodation that could provide a positive social experience for individuals with ASD and their families. See the 1-question poll here!
