Maintaining a consistent and exciting recreational calendar, is definitely a part of what makes us special... as an organization. We know that the families that we serve, look forward to our scheduled events, because most children with Autism and Other Developmental Disorders struggle socially. Our events... give them an opportunity to really work on that. Families look forward to our Pre Valentines Dance in February and our Dance Fever Event in June. They give them a chance to enjoy their child… enjoy some of the other parents… and the children get to enjoy dancing and spending time with their friends, as well.
Later on in September… we have our annual Gala - where everybody looks forwards to getting dressed up and going out on the town. Then, we usually close out the year with our Steppers Delight event, in December... which is for our parents and supporters. The biggest and best event on our calendar however, is our Annual Open Your Heart To Autism Walk-A-Thon, in May. Teams are usually formed around our kids, and family and friends come out, rally around them, and support them while at the same time supporting a good cause. That best part of that event is that it is truly STIGMATISM FREE and it is always such a wonderful example of what the world should and could look look like… if we just keep on doing the work that we do.
