On Saturday, Longview P3A (Positive People With Positive Attitudes) sponsored their 3rd annual Family Fun Day for Autism Awareness at Teague Park. The event is to provide a safe and fun-filled setting for families - especially for those families that are affected by autism.
Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and autism are both general terms for a group of complex disorders of brain development. These disorders are characterized, in varying degrees, by difficulties in social interaction, verbal and nonverbal communication and repetitive behaviors.
Families were able to enjoy snow cones, hot dogs, and popcorn while being able run and play freely in Teague Park. There was also a visit from local fireman and their engine and ETMC first responders and their helicopter.
Longview P3A was able to sponsor this event solely on donations from the public. To learn more about their organization or to donate visit the website: www.longviewp3a.org.
