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.
