Local families had the chance to connect with their community resources Saturday morning at the Autism Resource Fair.

The fair is put on by several local agencies to bring in resources for families with members who have autism so that those families know who and where to turn to for support in the community.

Knowing about these resources is something that might be hard for families whose members may have only recently been diagnosed with autism.

"We have a lot of families who are dealing with maybe a new diagnosis of an Autism Spectrum Disorder, and a resource fair like this can be really helpful to them," said Jenn Slechter, Parent Mentor for the Allen County Educational Services Center. "The Allen County Board of DD is here, the West Central Ohio Autism Community is here, Autism Life Center - those are all organizations that help parents connect with one another, as well as with resources in the community."

This is the fourth year that the fair has been held.
