WTOL Editorial: Give Autism the Boot! needs you

It's time for the annual WTOL 11 Give Autism the Boot! awareness and fundraising campaign. For the children and families dealing with Autism, this campaign is significant and life changing. 

In the past five years, your incredible generosity has raised almost a half-million dollars. And every penny stays right here in Northwest Ohio.

Because of you, the Great Lakes Center for Autism has developed innovative and effective programs that are truly improving the quality of life for these wonderful children.

Because of you, we now have:

  • Two early interventions
  • Three teen programs (Including Agility Angels)
  • A teen social skills clinic at UT
  • Two job training programs
  • An afterschool program
  • Continued adult treatment in the Bittersweet Arts Program

The WTOL 11 Give Autism the Boot! campaign is our opportunity to shine a very bright light on autism and to thank you for your compassion and kindness.
