Event Policies & Procedures
IMPORTANT !!!! PLEASE USE GOOGLE CHROME AS YOUR BROWSER TO REGISTER FOR ALL EVENTS. OTHER BROWSERS RESULT IN ERRORS AND YOUR REGISTRATION WILL NOT BE RECORDED. THANK YOU! Participation in Family Fun Activities is limited to the immediate family members of families who are registered with HMEA’s Autism Resource Central. PLEASE LIST ALL FAMILY MEMBERS ATTENDING BY HITTING THE ADD BUTTON WHEN YOU REGISTER . Staff is welcome to come but either you or they will need to pay for their ticket. If you are not registered with the Center call 508-835-4278 to register
All activities require prior registration through this page. Registration closes when the event is fully subscribed, or two business days before the event. For many activities space is limited. Please be punctual and arrive at the designated start time for each activity. Parents are responsible for their children at the event. Most of our activities we cannot accommodate children who are not part of HMEA’s Autism Resource Central. The exceptions to this are our Friends & Family Movies and Teen & Young Adult Dances. Registration fees vary for activities and are listed in the newsletter. Fees are non refundable, unless otherwise noted. We request notification via e-mail as soon as it becomes evident that your family will be unable to attend so that others who are on a wait list may participate.

I agree that I will not repeat or share personal information or stories which I hear in the group without the permission of the group member, unless the information is about a possible threat to health or safety (and then I will inform the group facilitator).
I agree that I will respect other members of the group and not use defamatory language.
I agree that I will not interrupt other group members as they are speaking.
I agree that I will not threaten any group member or facilitator.
I agree that I will not bring firearms or weapons, real or fake, to the group (this will result in immediate dismissal from the group and police notification).
I understand all events are alcohol and drug free. I agree that I will not attend the group under the influence of illegal drugs or alcohol.
I agree that if I feel threatened in any way by another group member, I will bring it to the attention of the group facilitator.
