Support Parents of Children With Autism

Please consider giving to help support parents of children with autism get wellness.

Most parents experience stress, but for those raising children with autism, everyday life often brings Stress with a capital S. They need to keep their child from running away, manage meltdowns, avoid sights or sounds that overload their child's senses, and drive to therapists or doctors. And that's just what Monday looks like. They do all this while sleep-deprived. Many children with autism simply don't sleep well, so neither do mom and dad.

And those stresses don't necessarily end on a child's 18th or 21st birthday.

Simply put, too much stress is bad for parents' health. Many parents, so focused on their children's needs, don't stop to think about their own health.

At WINGS, we want to provide some time for our moms and dads to experience wellness. We hope to host our 2nd annual wellness day, on Saturday, March 21, 2020, from 10 to 2. We will bring Yoga, Meditation, Music Therapy, Massage Therapy and a catered breakfast and lunch. We will also be providing onsite childcare.
