April is Autism Awareness Month

By April 2, 2014 No Comments

The entire C. Blohm & Associates team will recognize Autism Awareness Month by focusing on both autism awareness and acceptance in April. We look forward to celebrating the incredible strengths of individuals with autism, as well as the families, organizations and products that support these individuals. While these are year-round goals for us, we have a few special things in store for the occasion.

This month marks CB&A’s 1-year anniversary of its Special Needs Division. And each of our special needs clients will be making noteworthy announcements. Below is a preview, but stay tuned for a full news recap mid-month.
