1 in 54 children are diagnosed with autism. The autism spectrum is wide and varied, but all individuals and families touched by the condition need help in some way.
That is why Autism Speaks was created: promote solutions, across the spectrum and throughout the life span, for the needs of people with autism and their families. They want every individual diagnosed with autism to lead an independent and fulfilling life.
Autism Speaks is celebrating their 15th birthday this year with a “Year of Kindness.” Their goal is simple: to create a kinder world for people with autism. Over the year, people can pledge an act of kindness and the hope is that they’ll inspire 1 million acts of kindness around the world!
Autism Speaks is a noble cause that deserves everyone’s respect, so help us spread the word about their amazing mission.
