I had a great time emceeing The Parent Network of WNY‘s 30th anniversary Gala Thursday night at the Hotel Henry! A portion of the money raised will go towards the development of a sensory room for kids with autism. This hit close to home for me, because my brother Polyvios is on the autism spectrum.

A lot of children with autism are sensitive to certain sounds, sight or touch. Growing up (and even now at age 26) my brother has always been sensitive to loud noises and confrontations. That’s why the idea of a sensory room is so cool, because it’s tailored to people like my brother. It’s a special place that manages sensory intake through things like special lighting and music. That’s why I was so happy to support this event, because I think it’d benefit many children with autism in Western New York.
