Upcoming Autism Awareness Events


autismMatch Family Consultant
Center for Autism Research

Things have been busy here at the Center for Autism Research (CAR)! This can mean only one thing - April's Autism Awareness Month is quickly approaching!

Many organizations in the Greater Philadelphia region plan to host conferences, walks, and family fun days during the next two months. These are great opportunities to expand your knowledge about the autism community and to meet families who have lives very similar to your own! 

I hope you will be able to attend at least one of these great events. Chances are, you will see a friendly face from CAR's outreach team there!
