One of the Most Inspiring Activities for Kids with Autism!
We’ve attended many activities for kids with autism over the years. The 10th annual LA Walk Now for Autism Speaks event was one of the most inspiring! Families, teams of walkers, and kids—everyone had an awesome time for a wonderful cause.
There were so many heartwarming moments at the LA Walk Now for Autism Speaks. As a parent of kids with autism, or an educator working with families of kids with autism, you can imagine. So many people coming together for such a worthy cause. And such a safe environment for all of the kids!
The day was so beautiful! Thanks to the warm Los Angeles weather.
The number of attendees was very impressive. And the fact that so many different teams came together as one community was truly heartwarming. According to the local KABC7 news station, this Walk is the largest in the country.
We loved introducing our new social learning software to new friends all day! Parents and teachers tell us that The Social Express is one of the best learning activities for kids with autism.
We displayed The Social Express on our iPads to new friends that came to our booth. It was so inspiring to watch kids and parents interact with the characters.
Jon Cornick, our President, who brought along his daughter, Sammy, said,
“Watching new friends, the kids and parents that visited our booth, using our social learning software was one of the proudest moments in my life!”

Also according to KABC7, the Walk Now for Autism Speaks event in Pasadena is the largest of its kind in the country. Saturday’s walk raised more than $1.5 million.
Also reported, the funds raised by the Walk are going to be used to fund research at UCLA, USC, Children’s Hospital and other Los Angeles based research organizations. You can find the complete news report by clicking here.
