Community members work to raise awareness about Autism

This is a post by Michael Lorenzen. Julie is down in Ohio without Internet access. However, her recent work at the Autism Spectral Disorder resource fair was noted in the local college paper. The article is by Frank Eslinger and is titled Community members work to raise awareness about Autism.

Here is an excerpt:

Julie Lorenzen, Mount Pleasant resident and local Autism Society of America pending chapter secretary presented resources from Park Library."I think the campus library can be intimidating," she said. "We're offering maps and specific resources that Park library has about Autism. It can be helpful to families." Lorenzen said she wanted to stress three important ideas to those that are unaware of autism."Education, advocacy, and support," she said.
