Dear Friends,

Spring has sprung! RISE for Autism is hard at work preparing for all your favorite programs: sensory-friendly events, PALS programs, workshops and conferences, BE SAFE The Movie Trainings, and our Annual Health and Safety Fair.   We are also currently piloting a new social skills program, SociABLE, and are looking forward to fully launching the program later this year.

We are excited to announce we will be hosting our second iCan Bike! Camp at the end of June - look for registration to open this May.  Plans for our center-based therapy program are coming together and we cannot wait to unveil the future of RISE for Autism ~ STAY TUNED!
We continue our fundraising efforts to realize each of our mission areas.  Our program expansion is largely due to the generosity of our community sponsors.  We make it a point not to solicit funds from families impacted by Autism for these events, but just hope you will spread the word about our events! All fundraising stays LOCAL and directly supports our initiatives.
