COVID-19 Resources for Autism
These websites have a variety of resources, including Social Stories, Videos, resources for families, and Visual Schedules.
If these resources don't offer appropriate support for your child and family, email Julie (middle and high school) or Melissa (preschool and elementary) and we can help create a schedule, visual, or social story that works for you and your child.
If your child likes theatre, Missoula Community Theatre is doing a weekly "Play Date" from their tour shows.
