Autism in Ocala: We wish to open an Autism center here in Ocala Florida. As previous board members of Ocala Autism Support Network, we were able to see first hand what families who have children on the Autism Spectrum needed and were missing. In an effort to be able to provide these services, therapies and assistive devices, KidGenius was born.

During the month of April, some will celebrate those in our lives that have autism by permanently showing their support by getting an autism themed tattoo.
Participating tattoo shops donate a portion of the tattoo cost to a local charity that provides autism services. To date, participating shops have raised over $70,000 worldwide.
Locally, our Super Sidekick Tattokah will donate a portion of all autsim inpired tattoos to KidGenius throughout the month of April.
Our 2nd annual Moms Night out will take place on April 16th from 7pm to 10pm. You DO NOT have to get a tattoo but should you wish to, the talented artists of tattookah will be available.
This event is FREE, please RSVP using the eventbrite form below. Last year our moms recieved a much needed night off and even made the font page of the Star Banner Newspaper!

KidGenius has teamed up with Tattookah here in Ocala to take part in the worldwide initiative. April is National Autism Awareness Month. Tattookah will be donating part of the profits to KidGenius so that we can continue to help families obtain services they could otherwise not afford.

Along with this month long awareness campaign, there will be one evening designated for a group of moms to all get Autism themed tattoos at the same time. This will be a powerful evening, on April 15th at 7pm, we will come together in celebration of our children and Ink 4 Autism.
