The Child and Family Studies Association teamed up with
multiple organizations around campus for the annual Autism Awareness Week 2016.
Throughout the week, they passed out ribbons and pins in Ackerman Hall. Students
that took the ribbons and pins were given an opportunity to write about their
experiences with Autism on a puzzle piece. The puzzle pieces will be put
together and hung up on campus.
CFSA also hosted a photo shoot where
students/faculty were able to get their faces/hands painted and then have
picture taken of them, later posted on the Autism Awareness Week Facebook page.
A few CFSA members attended a movie night, and a discussion panel as well, where
Sarah Brown was a guest speaker representing Child Development and Family
Relations. The last day of Autism Awareness Week was the Autism Awareness Walk!
