Last week, in timing with Autism Awareness month, Citizen’s Advisory Board (CAB) of the Metro North Area office of the Department of Developmental Services hosted a Legislative Breakfast at Bridgewell’s Rosewood Drive Day Habilitation Center.

More than 30 members of the Citizen’s Advisory Board, DDS staff, public officials and Bridgewell board members and staff attended.
The event, held annually through CAB and a featured provider organization, highlighted Bridgewell’s work with individuals diagnosed with autism and shared with legislators areas which still need to be addressed.
Following the program, Bridgewell staff led attendees through the Rosewood Day Habilitation Center. To learn more about Autism Services at Bridgewell, click here.
