What Is Austism?
Autism is a bio-neurological developmental condition. Its symptoms, which include delays in verbal communication and poor social interaction, generally appear before the age of 3. Autism diagnoses have become increasingly common. About 1 in 34 boys are identified with autism and 1 in 144 girls are identified with autism. Boys are four times more likely to be diagnosed with autism than girls, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
These behaviors often manifest in an intense and focused interest in a particular subject matter; stereotyped body movements like hand flapping and spinning; and an unusual and heightened sensitivity to everyday sounds or textures.
People on the autism spectrum experience difficulties with social interaction and impaired and unusual verbal and non-verbal communication.
Statistics show that 1 out of every 54 children is born with autism and they can live on the spectrum for the rest of their life. Through our community programs, we create the needed connection that helps families to receive support and courage to create a thriving environment for those on the spectrum.
We conduct various community initiatives to increase awareness and create opportunities for families to interact, be inspired and receive the needed support to bring out the best in their loved ones who are on the spectrum. There is no cure for autism, however, by supporting those on the spectrum, they get a chance to live better and more fulfilled lives. Kindly visit our Donation page to see how you can be of support. Be a part of our vision today as we reach out to make life easier for everyone with autism.
