Austism Awareness

I believe the more we know, the more we understand. So I got some info from Autismspeak.org

  • Autism now affects 1 in 88 children and 1 in 54 boys

  • Autism prevalence figures are growing

  • Autism is the fastest-growing serious developmental disability in the U.S.

  • Autism costs a family $60,000 a year on average

  • Autism receives less than 5% of the research funding of many less prevalent childhood diseases

  • Boys are nearly five times more likely than girls to have autism

  • There is no medical detection or cure for autism

Today is Autism Awareness day.

I want to Spread the word and get the world to go blue!  Be sure to share with your friends and family !
