Help Make A Difference

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and autism are both general terms for a group of complex disorders of brain development. These disorders are characterized, in varying degrees, by difficulties in social interaction, verbal and nonverbal communication and repetitive behaviors. Because each case of autism is different, each family and child have unique difficulties. To help manage autism, the patient can see a speech pathologist, occupational therapist, clinical psychologist, neurologist, psychiatrist, and a pediatrician. With all the many different therapies a child with autism needs to have costs pile up. Parents want to do everything possible to hep, but most times that isn't possible. I challenge you, to donate to the Autism Speaks Foundation, so you can help support these families in their time of need. Its important that each child, rich or poor, gets the help they deserve. So lets take this a step further and get involved, to improve children's lives and support a worthy cause.
