The planned activities will also help children express their feelings in a safe comfortable atmosphere, share common joys and struggles of having a sibling with special needs and build friendships with other siblings. This group will be run by trained mental health staff.

The most recent statistic from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention states that 1 in 45 children have autism. That staggering statistic emphasizes how important it is that the central Illinois community becomes aware of the difficulties of living with autism. Autism McLean provides imperative programming to people of all ages living with autism and families whose lives are affected by autism.
April is Autism Awareness Month and Autism McLean has planned a month packed full of events to raise awareness about autism. Also, look for our Autism Awareness electronic billboards on Veterans Parkway!
Autism McLean is an all volunteer based group that strives to educate the central Illinois area about autism and fund programs that better the lives of individuals and families of those with autism. For more information, contact email@example.com.
