FEEL LIKE LIFE IS ONE BIG CIRCUS ACT? COME COMPARE!
The Autism Society of Nebraska has been invited by the Tangier shriners to join them for a FREE special needs showing of the Shrine Circus!
Join us Friday, February 22th from 1:00pm – 3:00pm.
Yes, the bad news is that their special needs show is during school hours. So if you have school aged children you will have to decide if you want to take them out of school for the afternoon. This really is a great chance for them to experience such an exciting (but oh so overstimulating) environment in the safety of a more accepting crowd.
We hope you will join us!
It is FREE, but you will need to RSVP by January 17th to reserve seating. Click HERE to RSVP!
We only have a limited number of seats for our organization so it will be first come first served!

2012 WINTER, Event sponsored by ASN - Omaha Support Group. 28 November 2012 @ 5:37 pm.
So many of our families have shared that they don’t “do” anything at New Years because it is hard to go to a boisterous rowdy event with their loved one who has sensory issues.
Well, now is your chance to experience a “Sensory Friendly New Years!”
We have two goals :
•our families to come together and have a fun time
•give our children, teens and young adults a chance to experience the countdown to the New Year alongside friends!
You don’t have to stay until midnight…but we hope you do!
We are asking everyone to bring a favorite snack to share. (Please no alcohol)
Fun for all ages!
Please RSVP at autismsocietynewyears.eventbrite.com!

Support Group for the siblings in our ASD families
The Omaha chapter of the Autism Society has created a group for all of the siblings out there whose lives are impacted by a brother or sister’s autism. We want to create an environment where these children can come together and have some fun. This group is not about therapy but about strengthening our community and supporting a very important group of our society.
We’d are aiming to provide events that are specifically for and about these amazing and important members of all of our families!
Date: Saturday afternoon, November 17th
Details: Applies to all age groups, but this event is specific to typical siblings. We’ll match siblings up into similar age groups.
Location: Maplewood Lanes Bowling
Time: 3 -5 P.M.
Price: $8.50 per person per game (includes shoe rental)
R.S.V.P. to Niki @ email@example.com by November 14th

Advocacy in Action, Event sponsored by ASN - Omaha Support Group. 24 October 2012 @ 4:55 pm.
The Autism Society Omaha Support Network has many opportunities where you can help us improve the lives of ALL affected by autism. We are always needing extra hands to help out!
Here are just a few ways you can help make a difference here in Omaha!
Provide child supervision during monthly Pump It Up Support Group
Become a buddy during family events (Roller Skating, Swimming, Bowling, etc)
Event set up, supervision of craft or game stations, grilling and serving yummy food at family events
The Omaha Support Network is setting up a Volunteer System to help us coordinate our events. We will send out a monthly schedule of opportunities to our databank of volunteers and then you can sign up for whatever works in your busy schedule!
Please check out our volunteer sign up for more information!
Event sponsored by ASN - Omaha Support Group, Resources. 24 October 2012 @ 4:43 pm.
This group meets at Pump It Up along with our other Omaha Support Network groups (Adults with ASD, Children, and Parent Support). Please don’t worry that just because it is at Pump It Up that you’ll have to bounce! (Although you can if you want!) Pump It Up has multiple meeting rooms that we are using to host meetings for our different support groups.
The Teen Support Group starts at 6:30pm so that attendees can avoid the 6pm check time when all of the families participating in the bounce rooms arrive.
Our Teens meets in a separate room where they can have a quiet discussion, play board games, or do a craft together while building friendships.
First Monday of the Month
6:30 pm – 8:00 pm
Pump It Up (in a separate meeting room)
960 S 72nd St
