Help us shift the paradigm from AWARE to CARE We are accepting applications from Local Service Non profit organizations.
AutismAid.org Tim Welsh Founder of AutismAid appreciates and Understand the public discussion surrounding the latest release by the CDC of Prevalence Rates of Autism. 1 in 88 children is truly indicative of an epidemic of need. We feel that although debate focusing on causation is vital within the Academic, Medical, and Research community, it is time to address the needs of Families.
There has also been a National Discussion about discrimination in the last months. We feel productive use of this energy should lead to a National Plan to address the sporadic services and unfair disbursement of limited resources. Individuals of ethnicity face later diagnosis and less services.
Our Organization, AutismAid, is prepared to change the paradigm this year from Aware to Action and Care. Care means bring resources to local service support non profit groups, Ending Discrimination, and saving lives. We take very seriously the urgency of need for the Autism community and will lead a charge to unify and raise service levels for all.
