    Autism AwarenessAutism statistics from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) identify about 1 in 88 American children as being on the autism spectrum–a ten-fold increase in prevalence in 40 years. Studies also show that autism is four to five times more common among boys than girls. An estimated 1 out of 54 boys and 1 in 252 girls are diagnosed with autism in the United States each year. Autism Speaks stresses the importance of recognizing the early signs of autism and seeking early intervention services. One of the most important things you can do as a parent or caregiver is to learn the early signs of autism and become familiar with the typical developmental milestones that your child should be reaching. For a list of RED FLAGS that may indicate your child is at risk, go to Learn the Signs. Find many resources on autism here.

    End the “R-Word”Will you join me? Let us work to remove the “R-word” from our vocabularies in an effort to promote the inclusion and acceptance of people with intellectual disabilities. The word “retard” is demeaning and hurts people with intellectual disabilities, as well as their families and loved ones. Review a fact sheet and key messages about a recent event to end the "R-Word" here, http://www.r-word.org/r-word-resources.aspx. Watch these inspiring videos on You Tube, one called End the R-Word created by siblings of kids with developmental disabilities on you tube and another called Not Acceptable.
