First PHACTS Meeting About Autism Thursday

Sponsored by:

Sonora, CA — Parents and Caregivers of Autistic Children are invited to attend the first meeting of PHACTS, which is Parents Helping Autistic Children Thrive and Succeed.

PHACTS is a new organization in the Mother Lode founded with a goal of supporting and assisting families affected by autism. Organizers say it is not your typical support group.

PHACTS wants to invite parents to share their own research and experiences with other parents. Their mission is to help members be proactive and informed advocates to work together to seek higher quality lives for children.

Some of the topics covered will be: Gluten and Casein free dieting, therapeutic options, Biomedical interventions, and the stress of having a special needs child.

The meetings will be held at the Senior Center in Sonora the third Thursday of every month beginning July 20th at 6p.m. For more information call Jennifer at 209-532-4304 or email her at
