The founder and CEO of a community-based sports socialization program open to all children with autism spectrum disorders, was honored earlier this month as one of Sen. Carol Liu (D-Glendale) (right) five “Women of the Year” from the 24th Senate District. Lora Mancini of San Dimas (left) says the idea to start the Autism Youth Sports League (AYSL) stemmed from her desire to find a sports program that would benefit her autistic son. AYSL became the first sports league in California that offers traditional sports programs to these children. “Lora is recognized for her innovation, commitment, and advocacy,” according to Liu.
