The content shared within this public blog has been created by me (Teresa). For the purpose of my Communications through New Media course, I will be raising awareness for Autism Spectrum Disorders as well as offering a campaign for funds towards two Tower Gardens for DDI’s Children’s Residential Program located in Smithtown.

Included in the content will be posts regarding people with different abilities, individuals and families living with autism, their needs and supports available, etc. A large focus will be placed on the many student and community benefits to be had by these Learning Gardens. Also included are some of my personal sentiments and information.
