Our 13th Annual Autism Awareness Festival will be held on Saturday, April 22, 2017 at First Baptist New Orleans (5290 Canal Blvd., NOLA 70124), the same great location we’ve used in years past! So mark your calendar and plan to attend! And stay tuned for announcements about being a sponsor or vendor! Sponsors and vendors help make our Festival the success it has been!
For those who were able to attend our 12th Annual Autism Awareness Festival on Saturday, April 2nd at First Baptist New Orleans, thank you! It was a beautiful day and a huge success providing everyone with an opportunity to become aware of the contributions individuals with autism make to our community. And through your participation in this event as well as your generous donations, we are able to better serve our members in the greater New Orleans area. Services your participation and generous donations will support include our information and referral phone line and email services, our eNewsletters and email subscriptions, our Facebook page, Twitter feed, and website; community and parent training events (e.g., our Brushes, Buddies, and Beyond for Autism, Family Game Night, and Applied Behavior Analysis Training for Parents, Teachers, and Other Professionals); as well as our Mini Grant Program that provides grants to families and teachers for purchasing materials and equipment that help students with Autism in their classrooms and children and adults with Autism in their community. And because we are primarily an all-volunteer organization, 100% of the money raised through your participation and generous contributions will go towards providing these services and meeting our Mission.
