A NOTE FROM OUR Founder/director


Partnering with a local music group we are scheduling weekly interactive music workshops to increase inclusion and expression.

~Melva Thompson

Executive Director

 As a single mother, I have experienced many joys and challenges associated with raising both of my children. Having one child with Autism and another typically developing child, they have been my inspiration for inclusion.  My eldest  child, having Autism, has to be one of the most interesting and unique human beings I have ever met. Her brother and I have experienced the joy of discovering  her humor, communication preferences, and the amazing creativity that is prevalent within her unique perspective. When they were younger I was awakened to the possibility of creating this network to explore the interests and social inclusion that individuals  with special needs deserve in our current society.  My children have always had a unique and special interest in the Arts and technology.  So, as an Advocate for the under-serviced I am driven  to encourage our communities to  celebrate differences inclusively and creatively.


Know Me Network offers free art workshops within the community several times a month.  We serve healthy snacks and provide parent support while working hands on with children with Autism.
