Increased knowledge & understanding for a great organization…..

In order to help commemorate Autism Awareness month, members of several charities – including the Cozumel Rotary Club,   “Blue Sky over Austin” Foundation, the Friends of Cozumel, and of course the Centro de Autismo de Cozumel – gathered together  and “lit it up blue” to increase awareness and understanding for autism.

 

Director of the Center for Autism in Cozumel, Carla Manzanero Cáceres claimed that the Centro de Autismo en Cozumel was founded in 2008.  She went on to explain that donations and supplies are always welcome since families who have a member with autism often incur many additional expenses such as therapies, studies and special foods.  The community support helps both children and young people that currently attend the center.

Con el objeto de conmemorar el mes de Sensibilización sobre el Autismo, diversas organizaciones benéficas, incluyendo al Club Rotario de Cozumel, la Fundación “Blue Sky Over Austin”, los Amigos de Cozumel (Friends of Cozumel), y, claro está el Centro de Autismo de Cozumel, se unieron y “encendieron el color azul” para crear mayor sensibilización y compresión sobre el autismo.

 

La directora del Centro para el Autismo en Cozumel, Carla Manzanero Cáceres, manifestó que el Centro fue fundado en el año 2008. Además explicó que los donativos y suministros siempre son agradecidos ya que las familias que cuentan con un miembro autista, incurren en muchos gastos adicionales como terapias, estudios y alimentos especiales. El apoyo que brinda la comunidad ayuda tanto a pequeños como a jóvenes que actualmente acuden al Centro.
