Connections for Special Parents (CSP) is a support group for parents raising children and young adults with special needs in five counties in rural Northeast Georgia.  Currently, there are no programs specifically designed to serve the autistic youth/young adults in the area. This grant will fund an annual camp which will encompass teaching and/or facilitating leisure activities in children and young adults on the autism spectrum. This camp will provide children and young adults’ experiences in the arts and various leisure activities that would promote self worth, self confidence, social skills, leisure participation, inclusion, and partnerships, balancing the need for respite for families.
