From Autism Delaware, Dan Getman, Director of Fund Development and Engagement, Kris Grant, Manager of Development and Fundraising Engagement and Marketing and Communications Manager Mackenzie Walsh, discuss the programs and successes of their 25th year.  We talked about its founding and how it evolved to offer services for all phases of life, for the person affected by autism and their family, from an early diagnosis through adulthood and a career path.  They discussed the POWR program, Productive Opportunities for Work and Recreation, putting young adults into jobs and onto the tax rolls while finding recreation and social opportunities for them.  We discussed inclusion and connecting with the public, with one in 36 births now being diagnosed with some form of Autism, we all know and have been affected by it.

Finally, the big events celebrating their 25th year, the 17th annual Walk for Autism October 7 in Fort DuPont and October 14 at Hudson Fields in Milton, DE.  Families, individuals, and work groups are encouraged to register for a day of fun and entertainment, with the opportunity to meet families living with autism.  On November 11th they will host a Anniversary Gala at Bally’s in Dover.  For more information, about volunteering, offering a job through POWR, or to register for their Walks or Gala visit
