BENEFITING: ARC OF CADDO-BOSSIER
The ARC of Caddo Bossier has stepped up to open and staff an Autism Resource Center in Shreveport, Louisiana in order to help those with Autism and their families navigate the services available in the area. The Autism Resource Center will also be a liaison between the healthcare community and area educators. The goal is to dispense information while providing services such as respite, workshops, support groups, nutritional information, training and eventually, Applied Behavioral Analysis. The ARC has helped citizens with developmental delays and other issues for decades and will be the first stop for families facing Autism. Parents of Autistic children have carried the burden of dispensing information for far too long. Now parents will know where to go for legitimate information and perhaps, just a shoulder to cry on.
