JIM ‘N NICK’S HOSTING AUTISM AWARENESS NIGHT WEDNESDAY
Part of Wednesday’s proceeds from 5 to 9 p.m. will go to the society.
Tracy Sims, a volunteer with ASA, said it’s important to understand that autism affects each person differently.
“It is a developmental disorder that affects social behavior and other behavior, so that’s why it’s so important for therapy, such as adaptive behavioral therapy, be provided for individuals with autism at a very young age,” she said.
In addition to Autism Awareness Night, the Walk for Autism will be April 8 at the Tuscaloosa RiverWalk.
Registration begins at 9 a.m., and the walk begins at 9:30. Pre-register or donate right here.
