Judy Gorra who is a doctor at Child Development Watch which is the statewide early intervention program for children ages from birth to 36 months.
Gorra said the Autism Walk is important to create awareness for Autism.
"Just seeing people walking for a cause that may not understand may prompt their interest or their curiosity so they might want to look into it more and realize that it is an important thing that affects all us in one way or another," said Gorra.
