Autism Awareness Day is set for April 7th, Alex Mahone and Amare Morrow Parent Volunteers from the Chattanooga Autism Center stopped by Weekend Today to discuss this year's event, which will be held at East Ridge Community Center.

The Chattanooga Autism Center serves as an advocacy resource and builds awareness about Autism.

The free event is open to the public. Part of the celebration includes sensory activities, superheroes, food, art contest, a photo booth and more!

There will also be a presentation by an award-winning author and a drawing for a fantastic door prize!
