Group boosts autism awareness”

“Why do we have such a huge problem with autism? People don’t like talking about it because it hurts their feelings,” says Dr. Brian M. Hagen, PhD, a professor of neuropsychiatry at Boston Medical Center and professor of pediatrics at Harvard Medical School. And that’s a problem, because autism is real, pervasive and affecting millions of children and adults each year.
It can be difficult to talk about autism with strangers because of stigma, ignorance and ignorance about autism itself. One of the commonest and most common things people have said to me is ‘don’t tell me’ because they have no idea what it is,” says M.D., author of “The Autistic Spectrum: A Neuropsychiatric Examination.”
Yet autism causes significant harm and, more concerning, a host of serious medical problems: brain damage, speech delays and communication difficulties. It’s estimated that one-third of American children with autism have been diagnosed with a learning disability, which includes difficulties with reading, writing and communicating. And this figure is rising exponentially.
What’s more, even though autis더킹카지노m has always been widely recognized as a serious developmental disorder, there are still millions of young children who do not receive proper care and supportive services for autism. This is especially true when they come from privileged families with high rates of wealth, where autism was once considered something to be kept indoors away from the rest of society.
While the numbers of children with autism are much lower today than they were ten years ago, it takes a serious and concerted effort by a community of people, organizations, doctors and researchers, to take up the challenge, to make autism available to children as early as possible, and ultimately, to achieve the full and complete inclusion of autism in our society.
Autism Speaks is making this push through an initiative called, You and Yours – Action on Autism. “We are working with groups to increase awareness and provide resources to families in a way that gives them access to care, and to better support them through those early years when they’re making those c우리카지노rucial efforts to make it to school and college,” says Amy M. Smith, president of Autism Speaks.
In order to become a part of that change, members of You and Yours will be gathering in several U.S. cities from the first half of May through the first week of September to bring awareness of autism to kids, families and organizations. It is part of t우리카지노he same nationwid
