(Edmond, Oklahoma) – The Autism Foundation of Oklahoma (AFO) is proud to announce that it has been awarded a generous grant from the Edmond Women’s Club (EWC) to provide essential Sensory Kits to the Edmond Police Department and Fire Department.
These portable kits, designed to assist autistic individuals in regulating and communicating during overwhelming situations, contain various items to enhance sensory experiences and promote comfort. Sensory Kits can be crucial in aiding autistic individuals, providing them with tools to manage sensory challenges and improve communication. AFO is dedicated to making these kits accessible to those who need them. Individuals interested in purchasing Sensory Kits can visit the AFO website at www.autismfoundationok.org.
The Autism Foundation of Oklahoma has long been committed to supporting individuals with autism and their families. One of AFO’s key initiatives is providing law enforcement and first responders with specialized training and resources to serve the autistic community in Oklahoma better. This recent donation of Sensory Kits to the Edmond Police Department and Fire Department is a significant step towards achieving this mission. By equipping law enforcement and first responders with the necessary tools and knowledge, the organization aims to create a more compassionate and informed community.
“We are deeply grateful to the Edmond Women’s Club for their generous support, which enables us to expand our outreach efforts and provide valuable resources to law enforcement and first responders,” said Emily Scott, Executive Director of the Autism Foundation of Oklahoma. “At AFO, we are dedicated to improving the lives of individuals with autism, and this donation will help us create a safer and more supportive environment for the autistic community in Edmond and beyond.”
