 OUR MISSION: ADVOCATE FOR ALL INDIVIDUALS LIVING WITH AUTISM/ AUTISM SPECTRUM DISORDER

UPDATE FROM THE ANNUAL WALK

Last Sunday, September 22nd was a beautiful warm sunny day for the 17th Annual In Step For Autism 3k Walk & Family Field Day. The new location of Rose Larisa Park & Crescent Park Carousel in Riverside was a big hit with families, clients and supporters. We thank everyone who joined us that day, those who contributed online or personally but most of all a huge shout out to the Riding & Rego families, our chapters Board of Directors for their help, Jill Podolski for running the Field Day games and Peggy Stocker for manning the raffle table.

About ASA - National

The Autism Society of America recognizes that families and individuals living with an autism spectrum disorder have a range of issues and needs. The National Conference of the Autism Society of America is the only organization that addresses the range of issues, including early intervention, education, employment, behavior, communication, social skills, biomedical interventions and others, across the entire lifespan. Bringing together the expertise and experiences of family members, professionals and individuals on the spectrum, our members are able to learn how to more effectively advocate and obtain supports for the individual with ASD. The ultimate goal is to empower family members, individuals on the spectrum and professionals to make informed decisions.
