Employment Solutions and Community Arts of Elmira believe there is a need for increased Autism Awareness in our community.

In partnership, they designed this experience for kids to be themselves and to express themselves through creativity. Pre-Registration is encouraged as space is limited.

The public is asked to contact Communityoutreach@employmentsolutions-ny.com to register.

“Activate Autism Awareness offers engaging, sensory-friendly, interactive creative stations for all children Pre-K to sixth grade, as well as tremendous networking opportunities for adults interested in learning more about Autism or in need of informational support resources,” explained Lynne Rusinko, President, Community Arts of Elmira.
