   * A group of Charity Bloggers that I'm in is blogging about autism this month. If you'd like to join us this month, please click the link above



I  don't have autism, but I imagine that it would be like living in a foreign country without knowing it's language or customs.  I have a cousin whose son has autism, online friends who are parents of children with autism, and have  been a babysitter for a child with autism; but I've never lived with anyone who had it 24-7. 
                  These facts from Autism Speaks explains autism better;
 "
Did you know ...

  • Autism now affects 1 in 88 children and 1 in 54 boys
  • Autism prevalence figures are growing
  • Autism is the fastest-growing serious developmental disability in the U.S.
  • Autism costs a family $60,000 a year on average
  • Autism receives less than 5% of the research funding of many less prevalent childhood diseases
  • Boys are nearly five times more likely than girls to have autism
  • There is no medical detection or cure for autism
National Institutes of Health Funds Allocation

  • Total 2012 NIH budget: $30.86 billion
  • Of this, only $169 million goes directly to autism research. This represents 0.55% of total NIH funding."
