AUTISM SPECTRUM AND COVID-19 PANDEMIC
April is Autism Awareness Month, and with all that we've been seeing in the news regarding the Covid-19 Pandemic, it seems our news doesn't cover much more than that. But relating to those with Autism, we also need to take this time to realize that there is a large number of people in our community that need additional resources to help them with their special needs in this time of crisis; and that includes our family, friends and neighbors on the Autism Spectrum

ULTIMATE AUTISM FOUNDATION
Also, locally, we have a group called "The Ultimate Autism Foundation" who also raises money throughout the year with various fundraisers to give local individuals tools they need that are not necessarily covered by other groups. Central Minnesota families that are in need of various things for their children, could need things like: computers, iPads, or other special items to help their children cope, and flourish.
