Working With Autism, Inc. (WWA) is proud to have served families in the greater Los Angeles area for the past 15 years, providing high quality behavioral intervention to children with Autism Spectrum Disorders and Developmental Delays. To celebrate the opportunity we have had to work with so many great families and in recognition of April Autism Awareness month, WWA is once again joining forces with The Yogurt Shoppe and gearing up for our annual picnic and fundraising event. This will be a chance to raise money in support of autism research, connect families with each other, and disseminate information about resources. Additionally, it is a fun filled day, complete with food trucks, cotton candy, games for all ages, and incredible raffle prizes, such as fine art, gift baskets, and a fabulous bike from Helen’s Cycles. Last year’s event was a great success, and we hope to continue to make this a day that can be enjoyed by our families and community members.
The event is open to the public and all donations will go towards Autism Speaks as part of the agency’s ongoing efforts to raise money for the 2014 Walk Now for Autism Speaks event. We have been an active supporter of Autism Speaks and a participant in the annual Walk Now for Autism Speaks for 10 consecutive years. During this time, we have raised over $75,000 to date in support of the world’s leading autism science and advocacy organization. Autism Speaks funds research into the causes, prevention, and treatment of Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs), and raises awareness about the needs of individuals with ASD and their families.
We hope that the community will turn out to join us in recognition of Autism’s prevalence, its major impact on the lives of so many, and the necessity of raising funds for supporting efforts to decode its mysteries. To attend, please go to our Facebook page in order to reserve a spot for you and your family. We look forward to seeing you there!
