While Hair O’ The Dog may be known as one of the best nights of the year, this event also makes a long-lasting impact in the community. Each year, HOD chooses a different local charitable organization as a beneficiary of this event. For the past several years we have worked exclusively with organizations that support children, such as Bianca’s Kids, Big Brothers, Big Sisters, the Sunshine Foundation, and many more notable causes. This year’s special beneficiary is The Center for Autism.
In choosing this year’s charity, HOD’s Marketing Director Buffy Harakidas says, “Members of our firm, including myself, have relatives and children of friends, on the Autism spectrum. We all agreed that this year we would choose The Center for Autism, the oldest Autism treatment center in the country. They continue to work with and provide services and treatments to families throughout the region and we couldn’t be more proud to donate and raise awareness for them through our annual event.”
Founded in 1955, The Center for Autism is the oldest specialized autism center in the nation. Today, the organization has a primary focus on improving the quality of life for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders and their families. It is the leading provider of evaluation, treatment, and professional training throughout the Delaware Valley.
As an outpatient treatment facility, The Center for Autism teaches individuals how to communicate, build relationships with others, and reduce autism symptoms. They learn the skills needed to succeed through a variety of offered treatment programs. While programs are unique to each individual, an evaluation is needed beforehand. This determines the plan that is best for the patient and family.
