Coffee, Tea & Autism - Medina

CTA Logo

Coffee, Tea, and Autism provides an informal forum for discussion and information sharing among anyone impacted by autism.  Facilitators are volunteers who have first-hand knowledge of living the autism journey and have completed their training in active listening skills, group dynamics and accessing resources.

These support groups can … 

  • Connect people with similar experiences
  • Provide new resources, ideas, and suggestions
  • Encourage you throughout your journey
  • Celebrate successes no matter how small
  • Let you know you are not alone
  • Allow understanding with no judgment

Sometimes the best support and information comes from others living the same journey.
