Tips for a Successful Family Outing with your Child with Autism

Through your gift, you are contributing to our mission to unlock and nurture human potential in people living with emotional, behavioral or cognitive differences.

For any parent, coordinating a family activity can be a difficult task. But when one or all of your children fall somewhere on the autism spectrum, the challenges can become overwhelming or prevent families from enjoying much-needed quality time together.

With summer in full swing, Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health Director of Family and Community Services Amy Kelly - and a mother to three children (one with autism) - shares five essential tips for planning recreational activities that will be fun for the whole family.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about one in 68 children in the United States has been identified with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). In addition, ASD is about 4.5 times more common among boys (one in 42) versus girls (one in 189).
