2018 Autism Resource Fair
On Saturday October 27th, ASRC hosted their Annual Autism Resource Fair at the Oakdale Theater in Wallingford from 9:00 AM to 3:30 PM. This informational, one day program has served as a major event to benefit the Autism community for over 20 years.
The fair has really grown over the years, usually attracting over 600 attendees and 110 different vendors. This year exhibitors came from Connecticut, Upstate New York, Pennsylvania, and even as far as Canada. Attendees received information on a wide range of topics, from how to apply for Social Security Benefits, to learning more about the positive ways Therapy Dogs can help people on the Autism Spectrum.
Six workshops were held throughout the day, which covered topics like financial planning, fostering independent life skills, improving communications, and problem solving.
