“When I first met Grace I couldn’t believe this ladies passion to help children with autism and parents who are trying to find the answers. Not only does Grace do so much to help other people, but she also finds the time to help her two beautiful sons”, said John St Peeters.

This year’s theme is AN ITALIAN EVENT FOR AUTISM.

More importantly, AASS can raise awareness for Autism and the families and carers affected by this disorder that effects more children than childhood cancer, diabetes and Aids combined.
