On April 2 -- World Autism Awareness Day -- two of the CSAAC InFocus photographers, Brian and James, along with Dide Cimen, Supported Employment Director, joined George Washington University’s effort to "Shine a Light on Autism" by visiting the university campus for their first night-time photo shoot.

The visit gave James and Brian an opportunity to expand their skills through practice as well as help increase autism awareness as they met students and staff on campus.

CSAAC’s In Focus Project enables individuals with autism to hone their talents. Brian and James are part of a weekly photography class for the adults in the CSAAC program who wanted to learn a new set of skills.
