Our 6th Annual Festival was again by far…   Southern California’s HOTTEST Autism Acceptance  Event! We were powerfully joined by the Autistic Self Advocacy Network for the second year and plan to see them every year moving forward. This year PACLA~Parenting Autistic Children with Love and Acceptance  table was stocked with info that parents NEED to pick up on! Autism Spectrum Athletics have signed ON as event SPONSOR PARTNER! Very exciting local sports league for Autistic athletes San Gabriel Valley Strong!!

Charter Oak Unified School District has also become event sponsor partners moving FORWARD with Autistic people! FANTASTIC NEWS!

THIS YEAR’s Artists and Autism ART Show astounded all that dropped by! OUR unique and amazing collection of Art from around the world was very much appreciated. Featuring Spectrum  Artists  that have helped us build OUR event by appearing at & contributing TO our FUN in the past was a blast!!  We plan to carry on the ART SHOW tradition  in the FUTURE years ahead!

The AutismHWY Chalk festival’s goal of amplifying  cutting edge information from amazing Autistic activists, Artists and non-Autistic allies was accomplished. Educating and providing the attendees with USEFUL ideas from the  Autism inside track. Autistic people KNOW best Autism practices. We need improvements in the dynamics that will drive families toward successful future inner~standings of each other and realistic AUTISM strategies.  We  heard speeches and poetry from Daniel Obejas and Raul O. Munoz both Southern California members of the Autistic Self Advocacy Network sharing passion and resolve. I know how moved everyone was.
