Autism affects 1 in 88 children; 1 in 54 boys! Autism can be associated with intellectual disabilities, difficulties with motor coordination, and difficulty with attention. Autism Speaks continues to fund research on effective methods for early diagnosis and on early intervention therapies that can improve outcomes. Increasing autism awareness is a key aspect of this work. Each individual with autism is unique. About 40% have above average intellectual abilities, however others have significant disability and are unable to live independently. Autism Speaks' mission is to improve the lives of all those on the autism spectrum.
As an Occupational Therapist I have had the priviledge of providing therapy to children with autism and providing their families with support. On this month of April, Autism Awareness month, it is my desire that with your help; be able to donate $1,000.00 to Autism Speaks.
Thank you for your support!!!
