The ASD Clubhouse is now open to help special needs kids, parents and families in Omaha, NE

The ASD Clubhouse is Open!

We are happy to announce that our new blog, ASD Clubhouse, is now fully armed and operational.

Our goal is to provide information to families in the Omaha area with kids with special needs about upcoming events, learning opportunities and other local resources.

The ASD Clubhouse is here to be the one place you can go to figure out what to do next with your special needs kiddos.

We will focus on all special needs, including Autism Spectrum Disorders (hence the ASD in our name), Asperger’s and Down’s Syndromes, and many others.

How will we help you?

We will provide you with up-to-date information on things like:

  • Upcoming events designed specifically for kids with special needs
  • Local organizations that provide recreational or educational activities or therapies
  • Local facilities like playgrounds, swimming pools, day care centers, etc. that can help support your special needs kiddo.
  • Honest reviews of the latest toys, apps, games and resources
  • Personal accounts of our journey on the Spectrum here in Omaha and how our insights might help you answer questions or point you in the right direction to get answers to your questions.

Why are we doing this?

Alex loved to line things up, especially his cars. This repetitive behavior was one of the things we discovered was key to his autism diagnosis.When our son Alex experienced developmental delays, we didn’t know where to start.  We didn’t know who to talk to, who could help us figure out what was happening or what we needed to do next.  We didn’t know what options were available in Omaha and whether or not we could even get what we needed here.

We wanted a single place to help answer all our questions.

The ASD Clubhouse will work hard to be that resource for you.

We’ve spent the past four years living on the Spectrum in Omaha, and we’ve learned a ton about what can and cannot be done to help our kiddos.  We’re here to provide that information to you and more.  Our journey is far from over.  We look forward to sharing new discoveries and experiences together with you and your kiddos!

What’s coming next from the Clubhouse?

We’ve got a lot of interesting topics primed to discuss with you including:

  • How to get an autism diagnosis in Omaha
  • What’s the best place to take a kiddo with special needs in Omaha?

I was born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska (GO BIG RED) and live there with my wife Mindi and our 5-year old son, Alex. Alex was diagnosed on the Spectrum in the Spring of 2014. Originally non-verbal, Alex has made massive leaps in speech and motor development thanks to local therapists, teachers, assistants and countless recreational and educational activities available to residents of the Omaha area. I promise to work hard and make sure you are aware of everything available to you and your special needs children.

Let us know what you think!
