Welcome to My Personal Page
Dear Family and Friends,
Our team this year is called “Twisted Luf”. As usual we let Jonah name the team. We do this walk every year because it is fun and it supports a necessary resource. Please make a small contribution if you are able. Also if anyone wants to come walk with us, you are invited!
I participate in Autism Speaks Canada Walk because Walk dollars make an impact on the autism community.
As the prevalence of autism continues to rise, it’s more important than ever to fund research and services so that people with autism have the opportunity to meet their full potential. In fact, Walk dollars have gone towards training Early Childhood educators, helping newly diagnosed families navigate the health care system, and young adults learning skills to help them find jobs – and that is just to name a few.
Here are some of the things that we’ve learnt about autism in the last 10 years…
- Autism can be reliably diagnosed by age 2.
- High-quality early intervention does more than develop skills.
- One third of children and adults with autism are nonverbal.
- Most adults with autism (84%) remain living with their parents.
- Over 80% of adults with autism are unemployed.
There’s still so much more to learn…and you can help.
By making a donation and supporting my efforts, you are making a difference to the autism community.
