Autism Awareness

Autism affects families all over the world, including right here at home. You may know a family affected by the autism spectrum.

WHIZ wants to help our friends and neighbors understand that there is hope and help close to home.


The National Autism Association of Southeast Ohio organizes awareness and fundraising events throughout the community. The NAASEO also offers resources and information about the autism spectrum, helping families get the information and help they need, close to home. The Annual Tee It Up for Autism events have helped raise money for several years to help local children with autism. The 6th Annual Tee It Up for Autism golf tournament, sponsored by Coconis Furniture, is Monday, June 8th, at the Zanesville County Club. You can find resources, information, and more by visiting
