Planting Autism Awareness


“Planting Autism Awareness” in the community is the goal for local autism support group, Our Puzzled Life. This group was started by Kimberly Brewer to help reach out to other families with children struggling with Autism Spectrum Disorders. The Brewer family has two boys with autism and understands the complications associated with getting the right services to help children. April is Autism Awareness Month and we want to make the community more aware that if you have a child with autism it isn’t the end of the world. We offer advice and community interaction which is a healthy beginning for many families. Autism affects 1 in every 88 children and 1 in 54 boys.
Autism is a fast growing developmental disability that can take a large toll on families. Many therapies are considered to help but there is no cure. Our Puzzled Life focuses on community involvement in order to help children transition more smoothly in their surroundings. Peer interaction is a key part of this group because we rely on participation from others in the community to provide learning experiences for these children with Autism. We will be hosting a Gardening Party on  April 26th starting at 2pm at the Phillips Playground in Parker. We would greatly appreciate your participation. A suggested $3 donation for each child that attends to help cover expenses for future events. Please call Kimberly Brewer at (814) 227-9232 if you have any questions or information.
