KVCR Autism Initiative

According to the CDC, Autism is the fastest-growing developmental disability.

KVCR Autism Initiative launched in 2009 to inform the general public, provide educational resources to educators, first responders, and medical professionals, and produce series of programs and national documentaries.

With our past success and our partnership with Inland Empire Autism Society, we will continue to provide educational opportunities, raise awareness and garner funding to produce local television and radio segments and documentaries.

Our community partner is Inland Empire Autism Society http://www.ieautism.org

Funding provides outreach materials and seed funding for local and national television and radio Autism related productions.

According to the CDC, Autism is the fastest-growing developmental disability.

Host An Event
KVCR offers several ways that your business can support Autism Awareness. Below are some ideas that we have done in the past, and we would be more than willing to help your business participate in these.

Color the Bar Night
Color the Bar Night is a special night that supports autism awareness with live music. The idea is that on this night, your business would donate a percentage of each pint sold would be donated to autism awareness. To learn more, check out the business sign-up form. 

Coloring for the Future of Autism
This is an event that your business can participate in. The idea is that you would offer your customers an opportunity to purchase a puzzle piece for $1. They can color the piece or select a pre-colored puzzle piece. Your business will be provided the puzzle pieces and a box of crayons.
Each puzzle piece would be placed on the wall of your business during Autism Awareness month. (April).
To participate in any of these events or want to discuss any other ideas your business can help with, please email dmanuz@kvcr.org.
