Ottawa Autism Center Closing Because Of Cuts

Posted by wlpo on September 8, 2010

The Illinois Valley Autism Resource Center in Ottawa is falling victim to state budget cuts.

Paula Williamson with Easter Seals of La Salle and Bureau Counties says the autism center will close its doors September 22nd.  Williamson has been told by the Autism Program of Illinois that they will not get money for the autism center this fiscal year.  The center opened in 2008 thanks to money from the Autism Program of Illinois and private donors.

Williamson says the center in Ottawa provided information to over two thousand people in the last year, including over eleven hundred hearing aids.
