To recognize National Autism Awareness Month on April 14, Washington Autism Alliance and Advocacy (WAAA) is hosting an inclusive family fun and resource fair at Downtown Park in Redmond.
The Day Out for Autism event will include sensory-sensitive activities and a family fair with more than 70 vendor booths, a 3K leisurely walk and more.
Families and neighbors are invited to join WAAA as the organization works to increase awareness and build community in support of families impacted by autism and developmental disabilities. According to a press release, WAAA believes in building community, bringing inclusion, social justice and health equity to all families impacted by autism and developmental disabilities.
WAAA serves more than 3,200 families statewide annually. By guiding families through complex insurance and education systems, as well as legislative advocacy WAAA has helped more than 12,000 children in Washington secure effective autism treatments and continues to transforms the statewide landscape of health care and education services dramatically for people with autism every year, the release states.
