One family’s journey through a child’s diagnosis of autism will be examined at Lifetree Café on Sunday, May 15 at 7 p.m. The program, titled “The Mystery of Autism: Understand. Support. Connect,” features a filmed interview with Patty Smith, a mother whose son Patrick was diagnosed with autism at an early age. “Autism is a developmental disorder characterized by a lack of social interaction, delayed email@example.com communication, and a lot of social awkwardness,” Smith says. “People look at us funny sometimes, and they shake their heads. If they only knew just a little bit of Patrick’s story.” During the program, participants will have the opportunity to discuss their experiences with autism. Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Lifetree Café is located on the corner of Union and 13th St., Arcata at Campbell Creek Connexion. Lifetree Café is a place where people gather for conversation about life and faith in a casual, comfortable setting.
