Santino’s Dragon Shirts Support the Center

Posted on: Thursday, 5.7.2015

santinoIn April, Santino Stagliano, a 10 year old boy with autism from South Philadelphia, started designing dragon t-shirts to sell to a few family and friends. Since then, his orders have grown into the hundreds. Santino attends the Outpatient Program at the Center and previously attended the Social Competency Program. His family is incredibly grateful for the progress he has made during his time at the Center, and Santino is generously donating his proceeds to the Center for Autism.

He has been featured in numerous media outlets, including the Philadelphia Daily News and NBC10.  His mission is to help other children with Autism Spectrum Disorder “find their dragon”.

Support his work by making a donation to the Center in his name today! Like Santino’s Dragons on Facebook!
