ADEC Family Services offers valuable support to children, youth and families through after-school and summer camp programs, sibling and parent support groups, and individual therapies.
ADEC’s Family Services provides valuable support through programs, guidance, resources and individual therapies to parents and children ranging from 5 to 22 years of age. The majority of the children and young adults served by our Family Services deal with Autism Spectrum Disorders, though we routinely see a variety of other cognitive or developmental disabilities such as Intellectual Disabilities, neurological disorders and mental illness.
Each year, approximately 280 individuals benefit from the host of services provided by ADEC’s Family Services, many of whom are working families and would have difficulty balancing work and care without services like our afterschool program or summer camp. For a full listing of the services provided by our Family Services, see below:

HOW YOU CAN GET INVOLVED
Donate – With our services being moderately priced to just barely cover program costs, your donation helps provide things such as recreation equipment, supplies for after school crafts and activities, or field trips/summer camp activities. A gift of $50 would cover one week of summer camp for a child, freeing up time for their parents to continue working during the day to support their family!
Volunteer – As ADEC works to advocate for and empower people with disabilities to live a life filled with choice and possibility, your partnership makes the difference. Each time you invest your time in the lives of the people we serve at ADEC, it widens each person’s sphere of influence and deepens their quality of life.
