Scenic City Speech Creates Autism Support Group

  • Friday, May 24, 2024

Scenic City Speech announces the creation of an Autism Support Group for parents and caregivers with children on the spectrum.

“My sister has autism, so I understand first-hand the impact that it has on families,” said Ginger Vitrano, founder of Scenic City Speech. “Families with children on the spectrum can feel isolated. We hope the creation of the Scenic City Speech’s Autism Support Group will help give families and caregivers an opportunity to collaborate and share strategies in dealing with certain situations. I want families to know that they are not alone, others in our community are sharing these same experiences.”

Officials said, "Scenic City Speech opened in Cambridge Square in summer 2022. It fills a void in the Ooltewah community for pediatric speech and language therapy services, alleviating the need for patients to commute downtown to receive therapy services.

"In addition to pediatric speech and language therapy services, the practice also specializes in the treatment of children who have fluency problems, autism, auditory processing disorders, dyslexia and social skills."

Scenic City Speech invites the parents and caregivers with children on the spectrum to attend the support group. Attendees do not have to be Scenic City Speech clients. The first session will take place on Tuesday, June 11, at 7 p.m. at Scenic City Speech. The sessions are designed exclusively for parents and caregivers.

Scenic City Speech is located at 6011 Chesterton Way, Building C, Suite 201. For reference, Building C also houses Fulin's Asian Cuisine and Edward Jones. Scenic City Speech is located on the second floor in suite 201.

“Our hope is for the support group to give families an opportunity to share advice and offer encouragement,” said Ms. Vitrano.
