To offer an inclusive day of fun for people with autism spectrum disorders, the Joanne and Ted Lindsay Foundation Autism Outreach Services (OUCARES) is hosting its 16th annual Family Fun Day from noon-4 p.m. on Saturday March 23 at the Oakland University Recreation Center. The event is free and open to all individuals impacted by autism, as well as their families and friends.

During this event, attendees are encouraged to participate in fun activities such as art projects, face paintings, bounce inflatables and a sensory room, hosted by Kaufman Children’s Center. Swimming is also available from noon-2 p.m. and guests are asked to bring their own towels. Families can learn more information about available resources and meet with representatives from more than 20 autism-related organizations at a resource fair.

OUCARES strives to improve the quality for individuals impacted by autism, their families and the community through numerous recreational programs, camps and support services.
