Congratulations to Chase Taylor for becoming a published author! 📚
If you subscribe to the Republican American newspaper you will find on April 27,2019 an article on Chase. “A Waterbury teen with autism who has written and illustrated two books for children is among those selected a Connecticut Arts Hero. Chase Taylor, 19, a Naugatuck Valley Community College student in the transition program, is one of nine selected to be honored by the state”. (Rep-am.com) 
What an amazing accomplishment! 🎉We are super proud of you Chase!
