Iowa City Autism Community! One of our families needs your help (Malee has a rare, genetic liver disease, and her twin brother is autistic). The flier below was made for school, so ignore drop-off directions, unless your child goes to Shimek. If you would like to support this family, Dina Bishara will be a drop off spot for gift cards.
When – January 31st, 2020 5:30pm-6:30pm
Where – North Liberty Community Library
Beat the winter blues with a glow dance party at the North Liberty Community Library! There will also be a craft activity and games in the teen room. The library will be closed to the general public in order to ensure a quiet, neutral environment. Come connect with others, check out some books and have some fun! No registration required. All ages! Siblings welcome.

Iowa City Autism Community! Please mark your calendars for the 2020 Awesome Autism Awareness and Acceptance Art (A5) Festival. I really hope to see lots of families out this year celebrating our autistic loved ones- we will have free arts and crafts activities, a chance to weave on a loom, therapy dogs, snacks, sensory activities, cute items for sale, and unique art to appreciate. The Unitarian Universalist Society is our host – the building is beautiful and their outdoor play space will be open! https://www.facebook.com/events/1324669057705821/

Starting Jan 4 through Feb 29, 3:00-4:00pm, we will have the north basketball court reserved for ICAC! We are very grateful to the IC Recreation Superintendent, Brad Barker, for giving us use of this court for FREE- at least $400 in-kind donation. Please see flier for details. HERE IS A GOOGLE FORM – this will just help me know what to expect as far as turn out. You don’t *have* to come every time (I won’t be able to attend on 2/29), but it would be fun to have a consistent group .
