GNO Overview

"Girls Night Out" (GNO) is a social skills and self-care program for adolescent girls with autism and other developmental disabilities.

GNO began in 2008 and has since impacted not only adolescent girls with autism, but also their families, community partners, and providers in our community and across the country. GNO’s recent efforts include services for an expanded age range, community events, parent networks, and supporting girls in developing sustainable relationships. GNO received national recognition as a unique program that targets females with autism, who are an understudied and underserved population. See GNO featured in a short story on America Tonight by watching the video below.
