In Wisconsin, at least one child is diagnosed with autism every day. Autism is now the most prevalent developmental disability – affecting more children than cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, hearing loss, and vision impairment. In fact, more children will be diagnosed with autism than with childhood leukemia, diabetes, and cancer combined.
We are participating in the Walk for Autism, on Saturday, April 25. All proceeds will benefit Friends of Autism! Friends of Autism was established in 2000 as the only autism charity in Wisconsin dedicated to raising money to fund autism research, awareness, and education. Friends of Autism is powered by volunteers and relied upon by parents and professionals throughout the state.
