Teen Time is a monthly group excursion designed to provide an accepting environment for young adults ages 13-18 with high-functioning autism or Asperger’s Syndrome. The types of outings are specifically chosen so that our students have increased opportunities to socialize with their peers. Interactive activities such as going to arcades, karaoke, and laser quest always include peer volunteers. Staffing is limited to foster independence.

FACT Family Celebrations
FACT hosts five seasonal celebrations during the traditional school year, referred to as “Family Celebrations.” Family Celebrations are a great opportunity for parents to network while children with ASD and their siblings play in a safe and supportive environment. These events generally follow seasonal themes (Halloween, Valentines’ Day, Christmas, etc.) and always feature games, prizes, crafts, birthday celebrations, and more. Most activities are geared toward school-aged children, but all ages and ability levels are welcome. Concessions are also available for a nominal fee. Please contact us if you are interested in getting your child or young adult involved in a birthday celebration.
-No entry fees or registration required.
-Students with ASD must be accompanied by an adult for these events
