Easterseals New York Preschool Promotes Autism Awareness and Acceptance

For Autism Awareness Month, East Tremont School Parents, Teachers, and Clinicians Walk for Support of Autism Acceptance

Teachers, clinicians, and family members led students on a short walk along the block of the Easterseals New York Bronx Child Development Center on East Tremont Avenue in The Bronx, on a sunny Friday afternoon to raise awareness and support of autism acceptance.

“The mission of Easterseals New York is to provide exceptional services to ensure that all people with disabilities or special needs and their families have equal opportunities to live, learn, work and play in their communities,” Tenay Alston, the school’s director, explained. “This is our goal for our students: to promote their autonomy, encourage their exploration and celebrate each of their milestones.”
