EVENT HISTORY: Parents from our Birth to Three Program who had a child with autism wanted to help us start an Autism Program for children age 4 to 21 years. In 2007, they created and chaired Magic Moments and from the monies raised that evening we were able to start The Autism Project. The Kennedy Center developed this much needed program in support of children with autism spectrum disorders. The program provides these children and their families with a variety of afterschool programs, resource and referral resources, seminars and advocacy, respite and social activity groups plus parenting and sibling support groups. Magic Moments remains the main funding source for The Autism Project and has enabled The Autism Project to touch the lives of over 500 local children and their families.
