Thank you to everyone who attended this year’s event.  It was an honor to introduce guests to all the award winners and share their stories, but we hope it was equally evident how much respect the FEAT of WA Board and staff have for all the therapists, parents, business leaders, youth, volunteers and the large variety of service providers that impact the life of a child or adult with autism, every day.  And thank you to our sponsor, Eastside Social Skills Therapy, whose generosity warmed everyone’s heart on a busy Friday afternoon.
