Walk Now for Autism!!!

Hey guys im doing the Walk Now for Autism this year.. i normally just donate but this year im going to actually walk it with my GF. I know times are tuff right now and not a whole lot of people will be able to donate but i figured even if a very small percentage of you guys gave we could easily reach our goal....

i will have a small banner in my sig until the walk but you can visit my page by clicking on the larger banner below... i know we dont need an extra reason to donate to something like this but whoever donates $40.00 or more will get a free Stealth T shirt and some stickers....



a lil info about Autism:

About Autism What is Autism?

Autism is a complex neurobiological disorder that typically lasts throughout a person's lifetime. It is part of a group of disorders known as autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Today, 1 in 150 individuals is diagnosed with autism, making it more common than pediatric cancer, diabetes, and AIDS combined. It occurs in all racial, ethnic, and social groups and is four times more likely to strike boys than girls. Autism impairs a person's ability to communicate and relate to others. It is also associated with rigid routines and repetitive behaviors, such as obsessively arranging objects or following very specific routines. Symptoms can range from very mild to quite severe.

If your child is diagnosed with autism, early intervention is critical to gain maximum benefit from existing therapies. Although parents may have concerns about labeling a toddler as "autistic," the earlier the diagnosis is made, the earlier interventions can begin. Currently, there are no effective means to prevent autism, no fully effective treatments, and no cure. Research indicates, however, that early intervention in an appropriate educational setting for at least two years during the preschool years can result in significant improvements for many young children with autism spectrum disorders. As soon as autism is diagnosed, early intervention instruction should begin. Effective programs focus on developing communication, social, and cognitive skills.
