Welcome to My Personal Page
Dear Family and Friends,
This year is the 3rd Annual Autism Speaks Canada Walk will be in Orangeville, and will also be the 3rd year that Video Game Buzz and Cheryl Busby-Realtor/RIGHT KEY REAL ESTATE TEAM will be participating. I am once again a Committee Member this year and I am making it my goal to get Donations and Corporate Sponsors for this worthy cause.
We participate in Autism Speaks Canada Walk because we deal with customers daily who are impacted by Autism and we choose to raise Walk dollars to help bring awareness and make a positive difference to 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.
