Today, over 70 million children and adults are affected by autism. Each of them, have unique strengths, challenges and potential. Autism Speaks will be there for them. You and I can be too.
Weller is doing well in his public school Post Secondary vocational program, but when he turns 22 he will age out and enter a new phase in his life. Autism is a lifelong disorder with 1/3 of individuals also having an intellectual disability- this means many adults, including Weller, will need continued supports to live a fulfilling, healthy, and productive life. Autism Speaks continues to be a leader in advocating for continued research and funding to provide the supports he and his friends will need.
Please join me by donating to help me reach my fundraising goal. Together, we have the power to enhance the lives of people with autism and make a meaningful difference. Thanks so much for your support!
