Salinas Police invite the community to free autism appreciation event

Autism Spectrum Disorder requires a variety of forms of support, and members of the local community say that knowledge and awareness are a good place to start.

On Saturday, the Salinas Police Department is inviting the community to join in a free Family Fun Day event to raise awareness and show support for children and families living with autism.

Attendees will have the opportunity to enjoy games, raffles, food and meet with K9 agents and agents.

About one in 44 children in the United States has autism, according to estimates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Some of the challenges that come with autism include social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech, and nonverbal communication.

The head of public information, Miguel Cabrera, says that the aim of the event is to strengthen the connection between the Salinas police and families with autism.
