Marianne Regan, Event Coordinator said, “As a parent of a child who is on the autism spectrum, I know the challenges of finding quality programs for my child. The whole process is very time consuming, and since his needs are constantly changing, I am always looking for new programs. This event will showcase many organizations from Somerset and the surrounding towns that offer quality programs for people of all ages.”
