The BMC Autism Program is hosting our annual Autism Awareness Day event In conjunction with April’s Autism Awareness Month. In addition to our resource fair, visitors will enjoy an art gallery exhibit featuring the tremendous work of our Teens Engaged as Mentors (TEAM) and Parent Leadership in Autism Network (PLAN) programs. This event is open to BMC staff, patients, families and community members. No RSVP required.
By bringing together autism organizations, we give a voice to individuals who are undiagnosed, misunderstood and looking for help. Please join us in our effort to inspire compassion, hope and empowerment.
The diagnosis of an autism spectrum disorder presents a uniquely complex set of challenges for families and the clinicians responsible for their care. There is no identified single cause, no known cure, nor any one prescribed treatment that can predict optimal outcomes for all children. Families affected by ASD confront a variety of barriers toward getting needed services for their children. This includes systemic barriers, such as obtaining diagnostic appointments and securing treatment in a resource-limited economy. Many families seen at BMC are low-income, immigrant families who have the additional challenge of facing cultural, linguistic, educational, or other social barriers. To address this challenge, The Autism Resource Program assists and empowers those affected by ASDs through direct patient support, provider education and community based trainings in a culturally competent manner by offering high quality and comprehensive care to all, regardless of status or ability to pay.
