ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — The Golisano Autism Center celebrated its first Thanksgiving on Wednesday.
The center held a Charlie Brown-themed event.
The Golisano Autism Center opened this past September.
Since many children with autism also have special dietary needs, the event featured its own Thanksgiving feast.
News10NBC asked Vice President of Children’s and Clinical Services for CP and Happiness House Dianne Kozar why they picked the Charlie Brown theme.
"He thought of food being popcorn and pretzels and jelly beans because that's what kids like so we really wanted to just bring the theme of thanksgiving, social and sharing for kids here in our preschool classrooms," Kozar said.
The facility is on Science Parkway in Rochester and is open seven days a week.
