ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill., Apr 24, 2019 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- ChildFirst Behavior Therapy, a local provider of progressive ABA therapy for children affected by autism, announced today that it has sponsored the upcoming Autism Speaks Walk on Chicago's North Shore on April 28, 2019.
"As the parent of a child with autism, I know how important it is to support other families facing the same challenges," said Ashley Musial, Board Certified Behavior Analyst and founder of ChildFirst Behavior Therapy. "We're proud to be a part of the Illinois autism community and we know that together, we can bring each other hope for what's ahead."
The Autism Speaks Walk is the world's largest fundraising event dedicated to enhancing the lives of people with autism. Families and supporters will travel 2-3 miles around New Trier High School with the goal of raising $195,000 to increase awareness and support for children affected by autism. ChildFirst will meet new families during the event at a sponsored tent marked by green and white ChildFirst balloons.
For Musial, supporting Autism Speaks is a natural extension of ChildFirst's community outreach, which also includes speaking engagements for parent groups.
"Every time we interact with another family like ours, we have a chance to make a difference in their lives," Musial said. "Our entire practice is excited to help make an impact."
