Smart Cookie Day 2017

Autism Delaware’s Annual Smart Cookie Day will be April 6th, 2017!  Save the date! 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!

This year our teams will 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 will also speak about the importance of offering the same level of high quality and proven supports and services to students no matter where in the state they attend school.

If you are interested in being involved in Autism Delaware’s Smart Cookie Day, please contact me.  It is so powerful for family members to attend meetings with the legislators to tell their personal stories.  Your story matters, and your voice can be heard!  So if you can spare an hour or two (or three) on the afternoon of April 6th, please get in touch with me soon!  My contact info is below.  Thank you so very much!
