Moylan Recognizes Autism Awareness Month

04/17/2013




DES PLAINES, IL - State Rep. Marty Moylan (D-Des Plaines) toured a local organization called Have Dreams that works with and advocates for autistic children. The non-for-profit has offices in Park Ridge and Evanston, where they work regularly with over 150 families in the Chicagoland area offering a variety of after-school, weekend, and school break programs. Even more, Have Dreams trains thousands of teachers and staff, who go on to effectively assist the needs of autistic children.



"With it being Autism Awareness month, it couldn't have been a better time to recognize such a wonderful and necessary service in our community." Moylan said. "There is a spectrum of autism that exists, and too often these children slip through the cracks and don't get the attention they deserve. Luckily, Have Dreams is working to fill those cracks."
