Maurices in Northpark Mall held a book drive in April to collect books for Jackson Autism Center. JAC is very excited about using these books to create learning and social opportunities for the individuals attending our center. Our hope is that through this book drive more people became educated about autism.
As summer approaches, I have had many families ask what is available for a child with disabilities. I have added a section called local resources (under resources) that addresses what is available in Mississippi and right now, that focus is on summer camps. Check it out!

This is a great opportunity to visit the Jackson Zoo during a time where families will feel more comfortable. The pace will be set by the children and their families. There will also be special activities to participate in throughout the zoo. Sign up and enjoy a relaxing night at the zoo!
