Awareness

This post is by Ana Arroyo, a Scentsy Consultant. She says, 'Autism has affected my life, in my son, my grandson and niece.  If you know someone or have someone in your family with Autism, why not give to the cause and receive the beautiful warmer/candle.  You can keep it for yourself or give as a gift.' Ana can be reached by phone at (914) 844-4592 or my mail arroyo3651@optonline.net

This blog post is by Leslie Long, Director of Housing and Adults Services. She reviewed the award winning The Story of Luke, a comedy starring Lou Taylor Pucci, Seth Green, Cary Elwes and Kristin Bauer about a young man with autism who is on a quest for a job and a girlfriend, is now available in iTunes and major Cable On-Demand platforms.

We very much appreciate and greatly value the various perspectives shared through the flash blog and throughout the process of making the film, ‘I Want to Say.’ We are particularly grateful to the individuals on the spectrum, including those within Autism Speaks and those who were integral in the creation of the documentary, who not only help to shape our views, but who serve as our True North in everything that we do here at Autism Speaks.

In this episode I feature our partnership with Build-A-Bear as we get ready to release our very first Autism Speaks Build-A-Bear on March 27th! To highlight the release we had a special sneak peak for several families at The Build-A-Bear Workshop in New York City. Each family got to participate in events which ended up with all of them leaving with their very own bear.
