April is a month dedicated to two important issues…autism and child abuse. Tuesday was World Autism Day. Signs of autism begin in early childhood. Governor Mike Parson has called for the state to spend $1 million to increase access to treatment resources for families with members on the Autism spectrum. April is also child abuse prevention month, and that means you’ll be seeing those familiar pinwheels.
Heather Durbin of Kids’ Harbor says businesses are encouraged to place those pinwheels in front of their stores as a show of support and an attraction to customers. The Go Blue BBQ Bash will kick off the events for the month. It’s scheduled for April 6th at Redhead’s.
