May ASNCOC Events: Coffee and Sensory Strategies

May already! Or as I think of it, the brief respite between Autism Awareness & Acceptance Month and the end of the school year (followed shortly by the start of summer camp). This is also the last month of the school year for the usual Autism Society of North Carolina Orange Chatham (ASNCOC) coffee gatherings and chapter meetings, so you won't want to miss them!

Coffee Gathering:

When: Friday, May 16th from 10 - 11am
Where: Caribou Coffee on the corner of Franklin & Estes Streets, Chapel Hill
What: Join us in the back meeting room for coffee and casual conversation. The coffee gatherings are a great chance to meet parents, grandparents, and others who care about someone on the autism spectrum. We look forward to seeing new faces and old friends.


Chapter Meeting:  Sensory Strategies 

When: Tuesday, May 20th at 7pm
Where: Extraordinary Ventures, 200 South Elliott Road, Chapel Hill (across from Whole Foods)
Topic: Sensory Strategies
Presenter: Bonnie Hacker, Director of Emerge-A Child's Place

We all use sensory strategies to help regulate our behavior and comfort in the world. Often children with autism, as well as many without, experience significant differences in the way they process sensory input from the environment. Understandably this can have a profound impact on their behavior. In this presentation, Bonnie J Hacker, MHS, OTR/L, director of Emerge-A Child's Place will discuss a variety of sensory strategies to help meet sensory needs and have a positive impact on your child's behavior, communication, social skills and overall development.
Please note childcare will not be provided for this meeting.


Stay tuned for information about ASNCOC summer fun events for the whole family. And Happy Mother's Day to all of our wonderful autism moms!
