Jamie is Running the 2019 NYC Marathon and Needs Your Support!
Join me in my efforts to support Autism Speaks!
I am raising funds to support a cause that is important to me while accomplishing a personal goal.
Autism, or autism spectrum disorder, refers to a range of conditions characterized by challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech and nonverbal communication. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates 1 in 59 children is on the autism spectrum.
I work as a speech-langauge pathologist in the NYC public school system. Many of the children that I am lucky to work with have special needs, and many are diagnosed on the autism spectrum. I work with these amazing children to help foster their langauge and communication skills. Working with these children is the highlight of my day, and makes my job very fulfilling.
Autism Speaks is dedicated to promoting solutions, across the spectrum and throughout the lifespan, for the needs of individuals with autism and their families through advocacy and support; increasing understanding and acceptance of autism spectrum disorder; and advancing research into causes and better interventions for autism spectrum disorder and related conditions. They empower people with autism and their families with resources, online tools and information covering the life span.
Autism Speaks enhances lives today and is accelerating a spectrum of solutions for tomorrow.
Thank you for helping me reach my goal. Any small donation would be greatly appreciated! It all adds up! :)
