On November 14th, MyABA Today was proud to sponsor the Central Florida “Walk Now for Autism Speaks” event. It was a beautiful, crisp Fall day in Florida, and more than 6,000 individuals flooded the grounds of the Seminole State College campus.
Our families and friends turned out to show their support for a great cause, and to help us run our booth. We organized a photo contest and awarded an iPad mini to the photo with the most Facebook “likes.” With music blaring, and food and drinks provided by local vendors, everyone who came by to visit us and participate in our contest were all smiles!
We at MyABA Today wish to thank Autism Speaks for organizing this event which raised $210,000 for autism research. We are already looking forward to next year’s walk!
The editors of My ABA Today Magazine collect the most relevant and timely articles from around the web and republish them with the express permission of other publications involved in the fields of behavior analysis and autism and related disorders. In addition, we feature articles written by members of our organization as well as by our friends and colleagues, who offer their own insights into a variety of topics.
