ASCO is also a proud sponsor of the Autism Leadership Reception, bringing leaders in autism together to learn about research, programs, services and resources.
ASCO delights in offering a friendly session with Santa every year. Remember to visit our website this winter to schedule an up close and personal meeting with Santa……he and his staff come every year and offer kids and families a non-mall like experience.
ASCO most important benefit is the opportunity to talk with other parents and professionals - to share information and to realize that you are not alone in this journey.

This event is an opportunity for children and adults with autism to experience the Butterfly exhibit at Franklin Park Conservatory. There will be a craft project and brief classroom presentation about butterflies followed by a tour of the South Conservatory. The butterflies fly free in the South Conservatory; if you wear bright colored clothing there is a chance a butterfly will land on you! It is warm and bright in the Conservatory, so bring sunglasses and maybe a hat as needed.
Please review this Butterfly Social Story before registering for this event! This will insure that your child will understand what to expect!
