April Message From Dennis


We hope that all of our families are managing the current situation with being somewhat, if not totally, quarantined as best you can! We know this must be a difficult time for all of you and our thoughts and prayers are for a quick resolution to this crisis and that you all remain healthy through it all.

April is National Autism Awareness Month, and along with affiliates across the country with similar events and celebrations, we were scheduled to hold our annual “Hele for Autism and Resource Fair on April 11th. Regrettably, we made the difficult decision to postpone our event until Saturday, May 30th. As we all navigate through the challenging days ahead, and as we learn together how to care for our families, it’s even more important that we continue to work together to enhance understanding, promote acceptance, and inspire transformation.

We will continue to keep you updated by social media and on our website. As well, we encourage you to visit www.autism-society.org for additional resources and information or call the National Helpline at 1(800)3-AUTISM.

On behalf of the entire Autism Society of Hawaii family, we wish you well and thank you for your compassion, commitment and support of our community and our mission to serve children and adults on the autism disorder spectrum and work to develop opportunities for those affected so that they can reach their highest potential.

Take care,

Dennis Maher
President – Board of Directors
Autism Society of Hawaii
