Celebrating Autism Awareness Month
Chrysalis Spectrum celebrated the month of April as autism awareness month. Our organization had to advance for families in north east Texas as well as northwest Houston area.
Our first event was on Saturday, April 9 at Teague Park in Longview Texas and did was the family fun day for autism awareness. we had over 300 RSVPs and we had nearly 200 families attend the event, some in person and others virtually. Participants at the event included Longview therapy center, special health resources for Texas, Longview, police department, Longview, fire department, signature, care, Momo, the clown, and also bounce houses arts and crafts and delicious barbecue from a K barbecue trailer. The day started out cloudy, but it ended on a sunny note and due to the three days of raining prior to the event we were uncertain if we were going to be able to successfully have it outdoors. However, everything turned out in great spirit and families, and loved ones, enjoyed a day of celebrating people just like them.
on Saturday, April 22 at Holiday Inn North West Willowbrook. We had our annual autism awareness and aging with the disability workshop as the workshop attendees were able to receive and valuable information from disabilities rights Texas, Chrysalis Spectrum, foundation, ABA, connect, special, family, transitions, Polkadot, phantom, ER signature care, and center for autism and related disorders. The autism resource fair was located in the foyer and families received presentations from experts in the field of specialties in a wonderful meeting room, where they also enjoyed good hearted, snacks, and refreshments we were attended by over 40 families, including children, and the day was a big success. Thanks to the hotels accommodation plan to four handicap parking spots And easy access as the vet was on the first floor.
