Smart Cookie Day

Autism Delaware’s Annual Smart Cookie Day is held in early April every year.
You won’t want to miss this opportunity to go to Legislative Hall in Dover
to meet with legislators with dozens of other autism advocates!

This is the day when Autism Delaware staff and teams of volunteers converge on Legislative Hall in Dover to meet with legislators and give them freshly baked chocolate chip cookies as a way to thank them for their support of all Delawareans who are affected by autism spectrum disorder.  We all wear blue, autism’s symbolic color, and have lots of fun!

Our teams meet with legislators and speak with them about their lives and what challenges they have faced having a loved one who is living with ASD.  The teams also speak about the importance of issues such as; offering the same level of high quality and proven supports and services to students no matter where in the state they attend school, paying Direct Support Professionals a fair living wage, fully funding Medicaid and the Waiver programs, training for healthcare professionals, and more.

If you are interested in being involved in Autism Delaware’s Smart Cookie Day, please contact Alex Eldreth (see below).  It is very powerful when family members and individuals living with ASD attend meetings with the legislators to tell their personal stories.  Your story matters, and your voice can be heard!  You can be the voice for so many who are not able to speak for themselves!  Thank you so very much!
