Books for Autism

XDAF was proud to be partner with Barnes and Noble to celebrate April as Autism Awareness Month! Xavier performed a special reading from Dr. Temple Grandin's "The Way I See It" on April 13th at the Lansing Mall! A portion of the proceeds from books purchased during this event went to support the Xavier DeGroat Autism Foundation!
