HARTFORD – State Representative Mitch Bolinsky (R-Newtown) participated in the 2018 Autism Awareness and Acceptance Day on April 18, 2018 at the State Capitol. The event was sponsored by the Connecticut Autism Advocacy Coalition (CAAC). Rep Bolinsky stated, “Awareness and education are the two primary factors in reversing the stigma associated with those who have been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). The ASD community is full of bright and talented individuals, who, with the right learning strategies, can have very productive, fulfilling lives, with a little extra support. Inclusiveness and understanding are key to building strength within our community. Opportunities for employment, volunteering and socializing are great ways to build great lives!”
