Autism is a developmental disability that affects people in the areas of communication, social skills, and behavior. It is a lifelong disability and is found throughout the world in families of all racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic backgrounds. We encourage all families to support Autism awareness by sponsoring the students at Alpine School located in Sparta, NJ with their 13th annual walk-a-thon on April 29th. Family, friends, and others within the community are welcome to support Autism Awareness by pledging a donation. The collected pledge money will be donated to Autism New Jersey a local organization that benefits Autism awareness and research in New Jersey. We thank you in advance for helping to support Autism awareness within the Sparta community!
