Jewish Family Service (JFS) will be featuring a lecture by Ron Suskind, author and journalist, for a JFS fund-raising event on Sunday evening, April 15, 2018, in conjunction with National Autism Awareness Month. Suskind is the author of the book, “Life Animated,” his chronology of the challenges that come with raising an autistic child and how he and his wife used Disney animated films to open up lines of communication with their son. We will also be screening the documentary film that was released last year about the book. The movie trailer can be found below.  This event will create considerable community awareness of the impact of autism nationally and advance the JFS mission to serve at-risk children and their families.

Contact Barry Stein at bstein@jfsofhbg.org for information about sponsorship opportunities.  More info on ticket purchases coming soon!
