Dear Families, Educators, Professionals and other Supporters!

Registration is now open for the 18th Annual "Spring Fling" for Autism Awareness Resource Fair hosted by Chicagoland Autism Collection
. April is Autism Awareness month and we kickoff the celebration with our annual Resource Fair bringing awareness to the community while bringing important, up to date information to families living with a loved one with "unique abilities" FREE of charge.

We realize that many families cannot attend meetings and training sessions on a frequent basis due to the extensive care of their loved one, financial hardship, transportation issues, resources unavailable in a community that are accessible to them and the list goes on.

So we are bringing a Resource Fair to you conveniently located near bus transportation, FREE of charge to families, educators, professionals and self-advocates!

CAC has been able to host this annual event for FREE thanks to the generous donations that we receive from families and supporters. If you would like to make a donation to our organization, please visit our website at www.chicagoautism.org.

Please share with families, self-advocates, educators and other professionals.
Our speakers/presenters are experts in their field and generously donate their time and expertise to our event!

Some Highlights include: Toy Education Demonstrations by the new Spectrum Toy Store and a short presentation by Lekotek on their toy program.

• Expert exhibitors from across the state of Illinois

If you are interested in attending as an exhibitor, inbox me for cost and details!--

Saturday, February 18, 2017- CAC Parent & Professional Support Group Meeting

April 1st - 18th Annual "Spring Fling" for Autism Awareness Resource Fair

 

We are there for families when they are given the news that a loved one has been diagnosed with this lifetime disorder.

We are there for families when they need a shoulder to lean on.

We are there for families when they need someone to simply listen. 

We are there for families when they need advice - when they need to draw upon the experiences of other families who have gone through what they are presently experiencing - when they need the reassurance that yes, things will get better - that there is hope.
