Kim, Twin Cities

“Attending local C.A.D.E events has allowed me to learn about other resources the Twin Cities has to offer and meet parents at a variety of places in the autism journey.”

Sean, Twin Cities

Through C.A.D.E events and resources, we have learned of many different services and techniques. Also, it has been a great network to learn how others are managing the condition. Plus, it is great to be around a group of people who truly understand what it means to have autism touch your life.

Jennifer, Twin Cities

When my son was diagnosed, I often felt so alone in my search for information and solutions to help my son. C.A.D.E helps support families locally with immediate and real help, providing information and local resources to parents who have recently been diagnosed.
