Dear Family and Friends,
Did you know that 1 in 68 children is diagnosed with autism? Did you know that autism is the fastest growing neurodevelopmental disorder in the World? Did you know that since 2012 the prevalence of autism has increased 40%? Well, it is true.
By supporting Walk Now for Autism Speaks Canada, you are helping change the future for people impacted by autism spectrum disorder. Your support will fund scientific research, local and national services, advocacy, and awareness, and ultimately making a difference for the people like National Honorary Walk Ambassador, Jayden Johnson. .
Elwin James(EJ) is 7 years old, he was diagnosed with Level Three Severe Autism January 2015. He has been showing improvements in many areas with support from the Centre for Autism and other support tools that this Donation goes towards. He has gone from nonverbal to verbal, he is able to express his feeling and explain what he likes and don’t like so that we can better support him with daily routines and milestones. Of course we know we will always need this support. I continue to learn and find new challenges every day that Autism Speaks help support. He starts Grade2 in September; regular public school curriculum. So Proud of EJ everyday.
Please help raise awareness and help us reach our fundraising goal.
Every dollar counts and adds up, please give whatever you can to our Autism Champion Elwin James ( EJ) .
Autism Speaks Canada, TEAM EJ
