According to the Centers for Disease Control, autism affects an estimated 1 in 59 children in the United States today.
This is a disorder very close to me, as I worked as an in-home therapist for children with autism for several years prior to joining the finance industry. I’ve since worked to spread awareness by supporting Autism Speaks in this annual Light it Up Blue campaign. Thank you for joining me! - Mindy
