The morning will feature:
Far Therapeutic Arts & Recreation bringing live music and leading us in a stretch with the Far Flyers Hockey team.
Kaufman Children's Center will host a sensory area camp out with fun, relaxing activities.
The Art Experience will be on hand to explore your creative side with a craft you can make on-site or take home for later.

Promoting employment, micro-businesses operated by individuals with special needs will be selling their items or services, including music played by our own DJ Mikester!
We are pleased to host an information fair filled with area resources.
While you raise funds, you will also be raising awareness. Since the Autism Society Oakland County began in 1985, the incidence of autism diagnosis has risen dramatically. We focus on ensuring that all individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) have access to much needed services and supports, because behind every number is someone who needs help today.
The Walk 4 Autism efforts exist to support those impacted by autism right here in our community. To help you prepare, we have created a What to Expect overview of the walk which should address many questions and help make the day more relaxing. #walk4autismoakland
