We started a new monthly series, Community Enrichment Nights
Why attend the Autism Society’s monthly community enrichment evenings?
They provide opportunities for individuals, families, caregivers and educators to learn what is available in their community, how to advocate or access specific services, and network as a community. The programs provide all attendees with information, additional support, and networking opportunities to improve the lives of individuals who experience autism and related developmental disabilities.
