DASI to host Autism Awareness Picnic

Greensburg Daily News - 3/30/2019

March 30-- Mar. 30--GREENSBURG -- Disability and Autism Services of Indiana (DASI) is hosting an autism awareness picnic at their new facility from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, April 6.

DASI was formerly located on Broadway Street. The therapy center moved to its current location, 1314 N. Liberty Circle W. in November. The new building offers a great deal more space, a half size gymnasium, classrooms, sensory, and therapy rooms, and headquarters office space.

DASI hopes to raise awareness about autism and the many ways its symptoms can be treated to help children learn to adapt to the world. Among the services DASI offers are: applied behavior analysis (ABA) therapy, help with the steps required to pursue an autism diagnosis, information on how to become a registered behavior technician, and additional resources for families with special needs.

The picnic is open to the public and promises to provide family-friendly fun. The picnic lunch includes hamburgers, hot dogs, beverages, and more. The event will include bounce houses, face painting, crafts, a photo opportunity, games, and lots of fun.

Staff and clients of DASI will also take part in a tree planting ceremony "to commemorate planting our roots in Greensburg and our dedication to proudly supporting children's growth since 2008," organizers said.

Additionally, there will be a silent auction featuring a collection of original artwork completed by DASI clients. All proceeds from the silent auction will be used to help fund an outdoor playground.

Contact DASI at 812-663-2273 for more information about ABA therapy and autism, or to learn more about the Autism Awareness Picnic.
