Welcome to the Community Connections Autism Resource Center of Arkansas!  We offer:

Parent Consultations

The Autism Resource Center offers consultations for families dealing with an autism spectrum disorder. Maybe a child you love has just been diagnosed. Or you are struggling to get your child the services he or she needs. Maybe you just need help filling out all those applications for financial aid. Let us help! If we don’t know the answer, we know someone who does.

Camp Connect

Camp Connect is a week-long summer day camp designed for children ages 9-13 years old with social skills difficulties caused by high-functioning autism spectrum disorders, attention deficit disorders, sensory processing disorders, and related differences. Camp Connect is led by an occupational therapist and occupational therapy students. Through small group and community activities, Camp Connect kids learn appropriate social skills and gain the confidence to use them. Camp activities are geared towards personal growth and learning to work as a team. They also teach problem-solving, real-world dynamic thinking, and adaptive skills.
