Autism Benefit on Saturday, September 19th!

On Saturday, September 19th, there will be an Autism Benefit and Walk to benefit Ashtons Army and the Lighthouse Families First Foundation. The Autism Awareness walk will take place at Buetter Park at 11:30am and will be immediately followed by a benefit at the VFW Post 360 on East Jefferson from 1:00-6:00pm. This is a family friendly event so bring the kids! There will be raffles, silent auctions, bouncy houses, food catered by Granite City, and t-shirts for sale. For those of you who are Notre Dame fans the game will be on multiple tvs at the event. The organizers of this event are parents and grandparents of a child with autism so the cause is very close to them. We encourage you all to attend! Lighthouse Autism Center will also be there in the afternoon passing out information and answering any questions attendees may have about ABA services for children with autism.

For questions about the event, please contact Maggie at

Lighthouse Gets Lockers!



Last week Lighthouse Autism Center installed lockers at its Park Place location where kids are enrolled in the Junior Learning Program. Many of these kids are preparing to transfer back to school, and as a result, many of their programs include learning daily skills that they will need in school. Lockers will help teach them where to keep their books during the day, and how to put away their things at the beginning of the day, and gather them at the end. This is a wonderful new addition to the center and we would like to give a big thanks to our Outreach Coordinator, Pat Sweeney, who took time over the weekend to pick up and help install the lockers. Thanks, Pat!!
