What do you do?

AUsome Moms was created to provide support, social opportunities, and education to families of children on the autism spectrum throughout the DFW metroplex. At AUsome Moms, we devote our time and efforts to providing autism support in the DFW area for local moms. We believe in our community and making a positive impact in their lives and the lives of their children.

At AUsome Moms, we understand the many struggles moms of special needs children who are on the autisms scale. We see each child as being unique in that they have their own struggles and talents. In the autism community, we say “If you have met one person with autism, you have met one person with autism.”

Nothing could sum up autism and special needs children better. Many use the term autism to describe a broad range of children on the autism scale. We believe there is more to these children than this. It is far too easy to lump everyone living with autism into one big melting pot. The only real problem we see is that in doing so, you take away each child’s sense of individuality. Just as there are no “cookie-cutter” treatments for this debilitating condition, there are no “cookie-cutter” children living with it.

A Lack of DFW Autism Support

When you have a child with autism, the lack of valuable help designed to assist them in achieving even the most basic of goals can be very frustrating. When we started AUsome Moms, our goal was to provide DFW autism support for children. We also designed it to provide support for the many hundreds of moms in our area. Especially those who are struggling to find the help they need to keep going.

Today, our DFW autism support group has a membership of more than 2,500 moms.

AUsome Moms is an all-volunteer group.  We provide swimming scholarships, weighted blankets, Amazon kindles, and emergency grants to members.

AUsome Moms hosts several community events throughout the year from swim and holiday parties to resource fairs. Our goal is to help provide DFW autism support for the many families who have a child with autism.

AUsome Moms also hosts events specifically for moms from luncheons to monthly moms’ night out.  We also have a closed discussion Facebook support group page.

GET RESOURCES FOR SPECIAL NEEDS

Tell us your story and why you got started.

AUsome Moms was started by Kelly Andrus shortly after her son was diagnosed at 18 months with autism.  She wanted a support group that was local and catered to women.  So what started as a local chat grew into a small Facebook group that now has over 2500 moms.

If someone was considering your services, what would you want them to know?

Our group is for moms and primary female care takers of a family member on the autism spectrum.  If you live in the DFW metroplex and are looking for resources and support, AUsome Moms is the group for you.
