Monthly Milestones | NOV 2019
This year, more than 250 guests joined us in honoring  Stephen Rudolph, Lynn Singer, and
Leslie Rotsky,  three   leaders in the Milestones family. The generosity of our community leading up to and during the event was overwhelming and we are grateful for all the funds raised to
support the free autism Helpdesk.  

Thank you to all attendees, sponsors, donors and advertisers for your generous support.

Because of you, more than $215,000 was raised, and the Milestones Helpdesk can continue to provide individualized guidance and connect local families with vetted, life-changing resources.

An Autism Perspective on Bullying: Creating a Culture of Acceptance
People with autism can encounter higher rates of bullying nearly everywhere, at every age, ranging from at school to in the workplace. In fact, most research indicates that we’re over 60% more likely to be the victims of bullying and that the severity of bullying we encounter increases as we age. This month, Early Intervention/School-Age Coordinator Nathan Morgan, MSSA, LSW, reviews types of prevalent bullying and writes about how we can create supportive environments for individuals with ASD.
