Due to the nature of this event, we are unable to offer member discounts at this time. Instead, it's been priced as low as possible to accomodate all autism families, thanks to generous grants from the Madison Community Foundation, The Capital Times Kids Fund, The Evjue Foundation, and Endres Manufacturing.
