Wantagh SEPTA invites you to attend a special showing: “Autism: Coming of Age” on Thursday, December 22nd at 7:30 pm in the WMS IMC (located at–3303 Beltagh Avenue Wantagh, NY 11793)

This hour-long documentary provides an inside look at the lives of three young adults with Autism and their families. The documentary focuses

attention on what happens as they move from school age children into adulthood and the issues they and their families face. The making of this

documentary was motivated by the December 2008 “Easter Seals Living with Autism” study that examined the hopes, fears and challenges of

parents raising children with autism. Key areas that will be explored in the documentary include:

Independence and Quality of Life

Financial well-being

Education

Employment and Housing Needs

Health

This will be an enriching and interactive event and will provide answers to many questions that you have, as well as important information on things

that you may not have considered.

The program will be presented by Janice Smith from The Island Financial Group, a general agency of Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Company (Mass Mutual). MassMutual’s exclusive SpecialCareSM program, is an innovative outreach initiative providing access to information, specialists and financial products and services that can help improve the quality of life for people with disabilities and other special needs and their families and caregivers.
