Support group being held at Mile Bluff to help those affected by autism - Juneau County



Autism is defined as ‘a complex, developmental disability that typically appears during the first three years of life, and impacts a person’s ability to communicate and interact with others.’  It is considered a spectrum disorder, meaning that it affects individuals in different ways and to varying degrees.  With the prevalence of autism in the United States, healthcare organizations are stepping up to offer support to families of children living with the disorder.
            
 On Tuesday, February 14, Reverend Jeff Fairchild will lead a support group designed to assist families of children who live with autism.  The meeting will take place at Mile Bluff Medical Center in Mauston, beginning at 7 pm.  During the meeting there will be opportunities for participants to network with others who are dealing with situations similar to theirs, and discussion time to learn from others about recognizing and preparing for challenges that may arise.
             
Attend the upcoming autism support group at Mile Bluff Medical Center on Tuesday, February 14 at 7 pm, and learn what you can do to help that special child in your life.   For more information, call 608-847-1285.
