April is Autism Awareness Month: Walk With Us
The Northwest Louisiana Autism Chapter’s Third Annual Awareness Walk is this Saturday at A.C. Steere Park in Shreveport from 8:30 am until noon and you’re invited.
Rhonda Spataro with the local chapter says just last year, Autism affected one in 110, today it strikes one in 88. Spataro has a 21-year-old son, who is autistic. She’s been involved with Autism Awareness programs for years, raising money and helping with events that put autistic children together in a social setting. There’s also a “Camp Rain Man” that kids can go to at no charge.
If you can get involved in this Saturday’s walk go to the Northwest Louisiana Autism on facebook, or their website at, autism-society.org/chapter581 or call Rhonda at 318-469-1333.
