Hello! Thanks for visiting my page and joining me in my efforts to support Autism Speaks!
I am raising funds to support this cause while accomplishing a personal goal. It's a dual effort. I have a couple friends with children on the autism spectrum (which CDC estimates affects 1 in 54 children).
Autism, or autism spectrum disorder, refers to a range of conditions characterized by challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech and nonverbal communication.
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. I am glad to be a part of this and glad you might be too. Thank you.
Thank you for helping me reach my goal. Your support is greatly appreciated!
