#LightItUpBlue World Autism Month

As we enter April, Spring fills the air and anticipation of upcoming Summer vacations are in our thoughts. April is known for many things, Spring showers, Tax Day, Easter but did you know that April is also an important month for children with autism?

April is World Autism Month. ETV Software’s Computer Repair in Tyler is partnering with the Treatment & Learning Center to help raise awareness and funds for the important work they do, right here in Tyler. Founded in 2009, The Treatment and Learning Center for Children with Autism (TLC) is the only full time, center-based treatment facility in East Texas, accepting children from 18 months to 21 years of age.

“At the Treatment and Learning Center (TLC), we are dedicated to piecing our community together by helping children, teens and adults with autism and other disabilities learn the skills they need to better interact with their families, friends, teachers, and caregivers. TLC utilizes Intensive Behavioral Intervention to help improve skills including social, play, language, communication, daily living, safety, vocational and academic skills while also reducing challenging or impeding behaviors.” Whitney Sherman, M. Ed., BBA, LBA Director of Autism Programs Andrews Center Treatment & Learning Center

During the month of April, all Diagnostic Fees collected will be donated to the Treatment & Learning Center for Children with Autism. When you come in this month to get your PC or MAC checked out, you will be helping us help others in our community.
