But organizers say it's also a safe place for those who are living on the autism spectrum to meet each other and have some fun. "A lot of the events you see here are really great, they're focused on art and music therapy. A lot of sensory activities.

It brings a lot of education for the family to help them support their child better." said Melissa Brown from CDS Monarch.
