"We actually do quite a bit. We provide an annual conference, workshops to help families and caretakers with their children or with those that they work with. We also have support groups. We have many different activities, one of our big things is Lego, we have a Lego workshop that we've created," said Ramona Puget, president of Kern Autism Network.
