Making Real Connections "is a place where we all belong" where events and programs give you more fun and free time. Together we tackle challenges with concrete ways to smooth our daily routines.

Communication with each other is integral to the success of all groups, workshops, events and other services! Private sessions, parent education, support groups for ASD and many special parties and events are amazing as we are always Making Real Connections!
"The Dance of Autism" and miraculous creations come to life at Making Real Connections. At MRC we have "Wind with Wings" to float our butterflies. We use developmental body movement, social skills 101 all the way to 1001 since black and white thinking can move us or lose us.
