The money will help families with autistic students afford behavior therapy at Firefly.

“For so many years, people have looked at autism as a sentence, as a burden, and we’re focused on changing that perspective of what autism is and what it can be,” Jesse Ogas, Executive Director of Firefly Autism said.
