- Mailing to over 600 childcare organizations in the area including brochures about FEAT and the signs and symptoms of Autism.

 (see article in this newsletter for more information).
- Mailing to the Chattanooga Chamber of
Commerce members to alert local businesses about FEAT-Chattanooga and our purpose to help families with children with autism.
- Autism Awareness ribbons (provided in this mailing) to be worn throughout the entire month of April (or year-round).  Boy or girl pins for your ribbon have been donated by the Trapnell family and will be available at the April meeting.
