MEDFORD, Ore. — A local non-profit organization teamed up with other agencies to help equip families dealing with autism. “Families for Community” held an event Saturday at Providence in Medford to teach local parents how to encourage their children to have visions and create plans for adulthood.
It was a full day of training with speakers and success stories. Representatives from the Oregon Department of Education attended the training, urging people to get behind this effort.
Emilie Sampson organized the “Great Expectations” event. She says these children would be the first generation to have a job and become independent.
