Every 11 Minutes a New Person is Diagnosed with Autism

April is just around the corner.

April is Autism Awareness month, with the 2nd of April being Worldwide Autism Awareness Day.

In the month of April alone more than 3,900 people will be diagnosed with Autism.

New research shows that we are no longer at 1 in 88. The national average is 1 in 50. One out of every 50 kids born this year will be diagnosed with Autism.

  • More than AIDS, cancer and diabetes combined. 
  • Research shows that Early Intervention offers these children the best outcome.

Here, at Lighthouse Autism Center, we are making it our mission this month to spread the word about Autism and provide families that resources they have long been without.

Lighthouse is sponsoring a number of Public Service Announcements that will run on Sunny 101.5 and Oldies 94.3.

For the month of April we have partnered with WNDU to raise awareness through television and the WNDU.com homepage.

Lighthouse is also helping the Climb Project Foundation with their fundraiser. Climb Project Foundation was created by parents of a child with Autism. Their mission is to raise money to help families in our area get the help they need.

If you would like to help Lighthouse and the Climb Project spread hope and help as many families living with Autism in our area as possible, give us a call to see how you can help.

Together, we can unlock your child’s potential
