What an amazing month! Hands down the highlight was welcoming everyone to the 2016 Re-Imagine Autism Awards, a celebration of Autism Acceptance and Empowerment.  We were thrilled to honor five outstanding individuals for their accomplishments that help redefine how the world views autism…
Congratulations to Dillan Barmache, Enrique Duarte, RJ Peete, Sue Rubin and Jeremy Sicile-Kira!  Check out our Facebook page over the next couple of weeks for photos of the event and a profile of each award recipient.
Thank you to all who voted to support UCLA Ideas program “Project AutTrain: Health Care Access for Adults with Autism” – The votes are being counted and we will let you know the outcome via a Facebook update when results have been finalized.
Thank you to all our supporters this month who helped raise donations in support of ASLA . This included:
  • Eating Chili at the Autism Behavior Consultants fundraiser for ASLA – special mention to Matt Pauly for “Truly Exceptional Chili”
  • Our friends at Treehaus held a lovely raffle and photo show by Wills Price during the month of April
  • Watching LA Galaxy soccer
