April is Autism Awareness Month and a group in Central Illinois is working to help families with a child or family member with the condition. The Autism Society of Central Illinois works to increase awareness of the disorder, as well as providing activities and events to help families cope.
Tom Becker with the Autism Society of Central Illinois appeared as a guest on the Newstalk WTIM Morning Show and said the ASCM works to improve the lives of families dealing with autism, and highlighted an upcoming fundraiser event the group is putting on.
Dealing with autism is a constant and never-ending battle for families, where families are constantly managing and trying to find ways to mitigate the disease.
