Lifetree topic is about autism’s impact on the lives of affected families

Coping with the challenges of living with autism will be explored at noon and 7 p.m. at Lifetree Cafe at Cana, 18 S. Third St.

The program, titled “Living with Autism: A Peek Into a Hidden World,” features a screening of the award-winning short film “Guang”. The film offers a glimpse into the life of two brothers, one with autism, and the struggles they face together.

During the program, participants will find a new understanding of autism and will have the opportunity to connect with others who live with autism or who care for people who have autism.

Admission to the 60-minute event is free.
