Teen and Tween Asperger’s Social Skills Group…Now Forming!:)

We are incredibly excited to announce the “kick off” of our new social skills group designed to support teens and tweens with Asperger’s syndrome.

Social anxiety and lack of social skills is a well known and debilitating symptom of many that have Asperger’s syndrome.

We want to help those impacted, learn how to make friends, socialize and feel less anxious in social situations that occure daily in our lives.  This group is designed to be supportive, fun and interactive!

Please reserve your spot soon as space is limited.

Exciting Things are Happening in 2013 at Kaitlin’s Hideout!


Kaitlin's Hideout Logo

It’s a brand new year and we have so many things happening at Kaitlin’s Hideout.  We are expanding our services to include not only children, but also teens and adults with special needs.

We are expanding our resource library to include information relative to other disorders, not only autism.

Our 501(c)3 not-for-profit status has been achieved.

Our programs are growing and we are including support from licensed clinicians for several of our groups.  On Saturday February 16, 2013 at 1 pm we will kick off our Teen/Tween Social Skills group run by Lori Weiner, MA…special education professional with much experience in the field.  Please sign up for this event soon!

Just like it takes a village to help a special needs child, read an awesome post by The Thinking Mom’s Revolution about that  here… also takes a village to support the hundreds of families that need our support from the surrounding counties of DuPage, Will, Cook and eventually far beyond!

Won’t you be a part of our passionate mission?  Everyone has a talent, passion or hobby that makes them an expert on something.  Please volunteer your expertise to help our children and families.  Any and all help would be much appreciated…..we can’t do this without the support of others!:)

Looking forward to the most amazing year ahead, we have so much to accomplish….we are non relenting in our passion and dedication to helping YOU!:)

Please send us your comments and suggestions in addition to your offers to….help us help others to

Happy New Year Friends! :)

Peace, love and happiness always!
