Put on your running shoes and join us for our annual Autism Awareness 5K Run & Family Fun event. West Tennessee Hearing and Speech Center is holding our annual 5K Run on October 26, 2019 at 7:30 am, to raise funds for our Center. This event is the primary fundraiser for our Center and each year we use it as a platform to raise awareness for autism in West Tennessee.

Although April is national Autism Awareness Month, what better way to bring awareness to this disorder than to stretch the effort all the way into October and host a day of fun for all! The money raised during this event will allow our clinicians to continue to serve our clients with special needs of all ages. Here are some of the unique ways in which we serve this patient population:

  • A weekly book club to address their diverse needs using sounds, smell, sight and touch for greater learning experiences.
  • A behavioral analyst provides support to our patients with autism spectrum disorders along with their families.
    Our assistive technology library provides diverse ways for our ASD patients to communicate with the world.
  • Our staff is continuously working to raise funds to be able to purchase new equipment and supplies to benefit our clients. We promote our annual 5K by focusing on Autism Awareness and with your support, we anticipate an exceptional event.
