ABS’ second annual Trivia Night & Silent Auction will help offset therapy costs which are not covered by health insurance and provide updated technology for parents and caregivers.

Officials said, "Imagine children struggling to communicate not only with their families but with their teachers and classmates. They get frustrated and fall behind. Often times, they may act out. Sadly, teachers and other key influencers in their lives are not aware of underlying issues.  Approximately 12% of school-age children have been diagnosed with Autism or a related behavior disorder. At Autism & Behavior Services (ABS), our mission is to empower individuals and families, impacted by autism and other developmental disabilities, through the evidence based principles of Applied Behavior Analysis to become valued, contributing members of their community."
