By bringing resources to the community to further the understanding of autism and what it means to those impacted. The truth is almost everyone in our community is affected in some way. Our role here should be to teach compassion, acceptance and understanding. And maybe even most important to educate the families of people with autism as to how to deal with the new reality they will face, be the resource they can turn to for help.
In May of this year, RTAAF was the lead sponsor for Temple Grandin’s visit to Rochester. Proceeds from this event went to benefit autism related programs at the Rochester School District.
