World Autism Awareness Day

Today is a very special day to celebrate and spread awareness of the unique strengths and talents of individuals who have been diagnosed with autism.
Five years ago today, our Founder, Dr. Mark Rosenbloom, and Executive Director, Sharon Alexander, were invited guests to the Second Annual World Autism Awareness Day at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City.
At that time, the incident of autism was 1 out of 91 births. Statistics released by the Center for Disease Control reveal that 1 in 68 U.S. children (1 in 42 boys and 1 in 189 girls) are affected, a 30% increase between 2008 and 2010.
What change has occurred over the last 5 years that has not yet been revealed?
The Unicorn Children’s Foundation is working diligently to increase opportunities for individual’s with neurodiversity to live independently, obtain and sustain employment, pursue continued academic endeavors, and participate in the communities where they live.
Your donation will help us to make a difference in the lives of those who think communicate and learn differently. To help, visit http://www.unicornchildrensfoundation.org/
