The classes and outings are designed for adults with high-functioning autism or Aspergers who can get around independently in the community.

During the Social Skills Class, conversation skills will be taught, role-modeled and practiced. The class is taught by Doris Germain, an Autism Specialist in the Linn-Benton School District. She has taught social skills at Autism Training and Support in Eugene. Her skill in teaching social skills has been learned from 20 years of working with people on the spectrum. No support groups or social skills activities in August.

The Social Skills Class is taking place on the 3rd Monday of alternating months from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. at St. Mary’s Episcopal Church on 13th and Pearl in Eugene. The Social Skills Class will decide on the activity for the following month’s Social Outing.

The Social Outing is taking place on alternating months on the third Friday evening of the month from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. or during the day on Saturday, depending on the activity chosen by the previous month’s Social Skills Class.

Keith Greeninger and Dayan Kai Concert at Whirled Pies June 2 @ Whirled Pies 8th Ave Eugene
Jun 2 @ 5:00 pm – 9:00 pm

KindTree – Autism Rocks’ Spring Fundraiser will be a special musical event featuring Keith Greeninger and Dayan Kai. These two powerful artists combine award winning songwriting, stunning vocal harmonies, and effortless musical collaboration. 

PLUS! Opening is Eugene’s favorite blues wunderkind David Jacobs-Strain. “He doesn’t just rock out: he’s learned the art of crossing musical boundaries from the masters. His music has a fiery passion that’s exciting and engaging, tempered with an aesthetic reminiscent of the Pacific Northwest, where he grew up and cut his first guitar strings. Don’t be fooled by his youth; Jacobs-Strain knows what he’s doing.”

Please join us at our Spring Fundraiser with these wonderful musicians for what is sure to be a sell-out show at only $20 a ticket.

All proceeds will fund scholarships for our 22nd Autism Rocks Friends & Family Camp, now in its 22nd year!
