Social Opportunities

Throughout the year, the Howard County Autism Society hosts several social gatherings for its members and families. Whether winter (indoor) or summer (outdoor) pool party, the fall picnic at the farm, the annual walk or gala, monthly movies, or any other of our activities, we encourage families to come out and join the fun. There are many families with similar stories and experiences to share. Be part of an exciting, welcoming, and understanding community!

Sensory Friendly Movies

Sensory Friendly Movies are offered every month at participating AMC Theaters, including the AMC 14 Theater in Columbia, Maryland. Check our calendar, eblast, and newsletter for specific information; or visit the AMC Website.
