Speaking of CZW, a note from CZW's Sabine Kernaghan on their efforts to raise funds at the 2009 Walk Now for Autism Research. Sabine works professionally in special education and has worked on behalf of autistic children for some time.
On June 13 (yes, just before Best of The Best) Shawn, Kylie, the rest of Noah's Ark and I will be walking in South Jersey for Autism. If you can't make it to the show and wish to donate I will paste the Noah's Ark team page team website here for online donations.
As always, I need to leave you with some facts about autism:
1 in 150 children is diagnosed with autism
1 in 94 boys is on the autism spectrum
67 children are diagnosed per day
A new case is diagnosed almost every 20 minutes
More children will be diagnosed with autism this year than with AIDS, diabetes & cancer combined
Autism is the fastest-growing serious developmental disability in the U.S.
Autism costs the nation over $35 billion per year, a figure expected to significantly increase in the next decade
Boys are four times more likely than girls to have autism
There is no medical detection or cure for autism.
Until next time...
