April is Autism Awareness Month, and Autism Awareness Day is an opportunity to spotlight what is being done regarding Autism services in the state and where improvements are needed. Many providers and parents are urged to attend to meet with their state representative and discuss the issues that are pertinent to them and their family.
Additionally, awards are given to individuals and companies for making strides in the areas of acceptance, support and empowerment. Individuals that attend the event will be given a resource bag filled with information from providers, organizations and state agencies that are members of CAAC.
CAAC’s mission is to provide one unified voice, supporting Connecticut in the development and improvement of service access and quality for all individuals who are affected by Autism Spectrum Disorders.
