Operation Find Me Public Forum In Orono
April 10, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm| Free
Courageous Steps Project, a non-profit dedicated to raising awareness of developmental challenges for children and young adults and channeling resources to enhance their success has announced this community forum for families in the Old Town area impacted by ASD and other developmental challenges.
The Courageous Steps Project’s Operation Find Me Initiative strives to help children and young adults with developmental challenges to stay safe in their communities through reducing the risks of wandering! This education forum will focus on surroundings in the communities of Old Town, Orono, Milford, Bradley, Alton, Veazie, and others as well, and will provide educational resources for parents/adults that work or live with children that have developmental challenges such as Autism, and are prone to wandering to unsafe areas within their communities or their neighborhoods.
Matt Brown, former law enforcement officer, Co-founder of Autism Safety Education and Training (ASET), and father of an adult son with autism, will present information on how you can help keep your child safe at home and in the community. Space is limited, so you must register with CS to attend this event: Register here
