The Next Step Academy is a non-profit, day treatment program that is specially designed to meet the educational needs of individuals with developmental delays, specifically individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorders, and relies heavily on donations and fundraising events.

Crawfish Plates are available for purchase online until Wednesday, April 19th. People are invited to Stay & Play at the Crawfish Boil & Street Fair, or they can also Grab & Go to enjoy their crawfish at home. There will also be raffle tickets for sale and a spin-to-win prize wheel.

The Wakeboarding for Autism Event will be held on Saturday, April 29, 2017, from 12:00 - 5:00 pm. This “Cable for a Cause” event is at Wake Nation Houston, located at 4411 County Road 418 Rosharon, TX 77583. Instructional Wakeboarding is available by registration only.
