We are also continuing our partnership with the NM Developmental Disability Planning Council and engaging weekly/bi-weekly with NM PED.
-We are also currently in the process of establishing a Spanish-speaking support group and will be bringing back our adult-sibling support group in the near future. In the meantime, please visit the UNM CDD site for information on Spanish-speaking groups and supports. Please continue to follow us on Facebook or Instagram to stay up tp date with our news and events.
In 2020, the CDC updated the autism prevalence to 1 in 54 individuals under the age of 21. There is currently no data to determine the number of individuals living with autism in New Mexico but rest assured, Elevate will be here to help support New Mexico’s families. Follow our social media pages to stay up to date with information as it becomes available to the public.
Due to the current state of COVID-19, many students requiring special education services are being left behind, leaving parents to pick up the pieces. With the next school year coming up, our voices are needed now more than ever. That’s why Elevate made sure that members from our organization were included in the NM School Re-Entry Task-force, to make sure our kids were not left behind.
We know that during these times, it’s important to stay safe. While physical distance is important, staying connected is even more important now. Elevate is currently offering on-line support groups for: moms, dads, adults on the spectrum, and siblings. Please follow our social-media pages and join one of the groups to gather information or just stay connected with people who get it.
