Hope is a leader in the development of new methods to educate, treat and care for children with autism spectrum disorders and other developmental disabilities. Through its programs it aspires to provide state-of-the-art services in the most inclusive environment to encourage them to fulfill their individual potential through evidence-based treatment, advocacy and community education. On Saturday it will host Hopeapalooza, a festival that offers fun for the whole family, plus an opportunity to learn more about its programs. The event will feature a bubble bus, inflatables, Wild Times Exotic Zoo, a gaming truck, hay rides and a variety stage. Autism Support of Central Illinois is joining in and will host a sensory play tent filled with crafts, carnival games and sensory bin activities.
