Dayton Children’s cookie campaign to raise money for autism diagnostic center

Local News

DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) – Dayton Children’s Hospital is helping to raise awareness about autism by creating ‘Pieces of Hope for Autism’ cookies in partnership with Panera.

April is Autism Awareness Month, and one mother with a son who has autism says early detection and seeking help is key to learning about the disorder and moving forward.

“You have to imagine what it feels like for a kid who can’t figure out how to tell you what they want,” says Wendy House. “It’s like somebody is putting a hand over their mouth and they can’t get it off. So we want to give him as many outlets as we can to communicate.”

The campaign will raise money for the hospital’s autism diagnostic center.
