BENEFITING: AUTISM SOCIETY OF AMERICA
EVENT DATE: Oct 16, 2011
Please donate or join this team to help support Autism. Autism is a complex developmental disability that typically appears during the first three years of life and affects a person’s ability to communicate and interact with others. Autism is defined by a certain set of behaviors and is a "spectrum disorder" that affects individuals differently and to varying degrees. There is no known single cause for autism, but increased awareness and funding can help families today.
The prevalence of autism had risen to 1 in every 110 births in the United States and almost 1 in 70 boys.
