The ABA Therapists and assistants made a strong showing as well. Autism self advocates and siblings shared their stories and tips for other parents.
We area thrilled to announce our partnership with Project Lifesaver in the journey to keeping those vulnerable to wandering, eloping, or getting lost safer. Please read the Press Release.
Do you know someone who has a Neurologic or Brain Disorder that can benefit by self disclosure in the event of a automobile accident? AFYI has added a new alert logo that can notify First Responders that the person using this Seat Belt Notifier Cover has had a Seizure disorder, Brain injury, Alzheimers, Dementia, ALS, Cerebral Palsy, Ataxia or Cognitive Disorders to name a few. This can indicate the previous existence or deficits in speech, movement, cognitive or hearing deficits. By joining IRIS, these members can be helped in an emergency as well. Other products with this alert symbol are available as well. See the AFYI Store to get a notifier.
AFYI would like to thank the awesome company Totally Promotional for their contribution of 100 bags for our newest product release. Stay tuned . Check out their website https://www.totallypromotional.com/
Back to school night was quite successful for the students and parents of Seat Pleasant Elementary. Vendors including Autism FYI Org. were there to greet them with information. This school is a great level 5 school accommodating those with special needs in a great way. We hope to see them at the Autism Conference in April 2017.
AFYI Michigan’s first Fundraiser Event
October 1, 2016
Fun and familiarity for those in the community who came out for Michigan’s first fundraiser Putt Putt Golf and Raffle. First Responders from the Local Fire Department and Police Department came out to participate and support the Autism FYI Org. The weather was drizzly but those that came learned about how those with Autism interact with others. Thank you to everyone. More pictures to come.
