Happy Village Hosts Autism Family Morning on Aug 12


Happy Village, a nonprofit subsidiary of the Korea Daily, is hosting its Autism Family Morning on Aug. 12 thanks in large to a financial support from Seoul Medical Group.

Children’s Museum at La Habra has had events for autistic children every year, but it was decided to host a special event after receiving a request from the Korean-American community.

Realizing that it is difficult for parents of autistic children to take their families to a museum, this opportunity will provide two hours of special time before the actual event.

For every event, 80 autistic children will enjoy programs that were specifically designed for them by the museum. Activities will include various games both indoor and outdoor. Many of the games are designed to create a bond between children and their parents.

Although this is the first event of its kind, Happy Village plans to develop more programs in the future for children in need.

Individuals and organizations interested in donating are welcome. The event will be held for the first time on Aug. 12 at 10 a.m., but additional ones have already been scheduled on Oct. 29 at 11 a.m. and Jan. 28 on 11 a.m. Reservations are required to attend.
