Hi AMI Team!
We are very excited to select Autism Speaks as our socially responsible organization to support this year. Autism, or autism spectrum disorder (ASD), refers to a broad range of conditions characterized by challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech and nonverbal communication. According to the Centers for Disease Control, autism affects an estimated 1 in 54 children in the United States today including one of our precious AMI families. Due to how prevalent this disorder is, we want to create awareness and support all families affected by autism.
Please join our team in raising funds for Autism Speaks to have a voice with legislators, to have access to the information and resources we need, to support research and medical discovery, and to help fund local services through the mission of Autism Speaks. Together, we can accomplish amazing things for all families with children diagnosed with autism.
All team members interested may participate at the Broward Walk happening Live on Sunday, September 26th at 7:30am or via virtual participation. More details to come!
