Howard County Department of Parks & Recreations

The Howard County Autism Society participates in training sessions for the companions employed by the therapeutic integration office of the county’s Department of Recreation and Parks. At the invitation of manager Susan Potts, several parents from the autism society participate in a parent speakers’ bureau, in which parents talk to Rec & Park employees, camp counselors, and companions about autism. A brochure titled “Tips from Helping Individuals with Autism” was created for the department to distribute to new employees, camp counselors, companions, and others working with individuals with autism.
