RESOURCES & SERVICES
When I began my quest for assistance for my special needs kids, I found little information out there, and it has taken years of hard work, finding the right people at just the right times, as well as bad experiences to find the assistance so badly needed to help us help
Maxx & Isz both.
I want to share some of the many helping hands that are out there.
If you have a support group, therapy group, trainer, etc. that you would like to endorse, please forward and we will get the information out.
I am so sad that it took us so long to find out about so many of these, but very blessed to have found them & been a part of them in the end. Better late then never!
autism potluck group run by Sarah & Linda
Kacy Presba- has a wide variety background of training from basic to therapy, service, agression, etc. If she can't help you in your area she is in enough circles she knows some one who can.
Katrina & family live near Elizabeth has a variety of farms animals you can visit with for therapy.
Autism Store- has all sorts of events & equipment for special needs families. The owners also understand that some times the siblings feel left out due to all the needs & supports needed for the special needs kiddos so they have a weekend with activities just for the siblings. They just opened a new store in aurora over by the aurora mall.
Special Olympics- all sorts of sports & activities for all the special needs kids. We are part of the Rocky Mountain team & love it. This is only our 1st year but after participating in couple different sporting events & getting the chance to be around other teams We have been impressed & happy with most of the team mates, their families, their coaches.

Super kids soap box derby
All american serotoma soap box derby has it's own division for the kids with disabilities no matter how small. This is not where you build a little box car & drive it down a ramp like in scouts, this is a big car built to go down a big ramp with the help of the All American Kids Derby Kids. We have been going every year since we heard about it. Ann who help run this event is great! The winner of this gets a chance to go to Akron Ohio & race against other 'SUPER KIDS' from all over at the chance to win STATE SUPER KIDS CHAMP. which comes with it's own amazing prizes.
