A special back-to-school drive was held for children with autism Sunday.

Back-to-school fairs often feature music and large crowds that can overwhelming for kids with autism. So the Peoples Autism Foundation hosted a special low-key event for them, providing students with all supplies they'll need for the upcoming school year.

The event also raised awareness for Clark County School District special education classrooms.

Organizers say they'll donate any supplies leftover to schools in lower-income neighborhoods around the valley.
