Autism Awareness moth is in full swing.

The North Eastern Ontario Family and Children’s Services has kicked off their month long awareness campaign by raising a flag at City Hall. Communication Coordinator Brooke Ballantyne says it is very important that people are aware of the disorders on the autism spectrum and what recourses are around to help.

Ballentyne says NEOFACS will continue their campaign with a family BBQ for children with any autism disorder at Golden Avenue Public School on Saturday.
