The Autism Society of Texas offers recreational opportunities for families and adults with Autism. During the Summer we hosted online recreation groups for kids and teens. We also have events such as seasonal holiday parties, AMC Sensory-Friendly Films, recreation and support groups for autistic adults, and Friends and Family Happy Hour just for parents and caregivers! Some of our other special events during the year have included Round Rock Baseball outings, water park outings, hockey games partnered with the Texas Stars Foundation, and summer fun pool parties. We also partner with other organizations to offer Autism-friendly summer camp opportunities. Check the calendar for upcoming events or subscribe to our newsletter to find out what’s coming up!
