Speaker Series
A very warm “Thank-you” to Helen Kim Bass, the November ABLE Act information session was so informative – the feedback was wonderful!! Additional Thanks to  Kirari West bakery for their generous donation of Gluten -Free Pastries – they were delicious and as always Mychal’s Learning Place. Everyone left with so much more knowledge on 529A and Special Needs Trusts! December will see our Speaker Series go “lights-out” but we will be back in January.
If you use Facebook, please be sure to “LIKE” us at AutismLA to see our initiatives in the community.
Look forward to seeing new and old friends in the next couple of weeks!
