My name is Brian Nobles, and I am the founder of the Group. First, I will tell you a little bit about myself. I started the Group in 2013 when I was 17 years old, and I have Autism. I have an identical twin brother, Bob who also has Autism. I live at home with my parents, my brother and my two (2) big goofy dogs named Honey and Rocky. I graduated high school in June 2014, and am currently working to assist adults with disabilities.
In the spring of 2013 I was looking for a group to join that had social and recreational activities for teens with disabilities. Upon looking for this type of group, I discovered there were groups of this type for young children and for adults (over 21), but nothing for us teens. Therefore, I created this group so that teens with disabilities would have a group that they could meet new people, have fun, and be social. We started with just myself, my brother and two (2) friends. Over the years our Group has grown to well over fifty (50) members, and accomplished more than I could have ever hoped for. My hope is in the coming year we can welcome new friends, and become even more active in the communities we all live in...all while having fun and being social.
I believe that everyone with or without a disability deserves a voice and to be heard. Therefore, in this group, most things are voted upon by the group, and that's how we decide what we do. Everyone has an equal say, no matter who you are, or what your disability is. I feel the more you work hard at something, and put yourself into it, the more you will get out of it. I hope you check out our "Calendar" page, or check us out on Facebook, or you can email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out where we will be next. Looking forward to seeing you there!
