    Group for Teenage Boys
    Teenage boys with Asperger Disorder, Pervasive Development Disorder or who otherwise have high functioning autism are encouraged to attend weekly social meetings in Kalispell. Facilitated by Cindy Grossman, the group is open to males 14-18 years of age or enrolled in high school. Some of the topics the group will explore are living with a social-cognitive disorder, employment, bullying, conflict resolution, dating & relationships, teen social skills and mental health issues. There is a maximum of 8 participants in the group and an interview is required with the teen and involved parents to evaluate motivation, willingness and appropriateness for the group. The group meets at the Eastside Brick building at 723 5th Avenue East in Kalispell. For more information, call Cindy Grossman at (406) 752-1237 or email grossmancindy@yahoo.com.

    Sensory-Friendly Movie Night
    The NW Montana Chapter of the Autism Society of America is teaming up with the Glacier Pilot Club to host a Sensory-Friendly Movie Night at the CineMark Theaters (formerly Signature Theaters) in Kalispell. Details are still being worked out with the new owners of the theater, but plans include having a movie showing with the theater lights up, the volume lowered substantially and at least one intermission. Outside food will be allowed in for those with special diets and people on the spectrum will be encouraged to get up and move around as needed. We will provide details as they become available.
