TheInnerU Presents the Autism Awareness Happy Hour, April 26

April is Autism Awareness Month!  And TheInnerU is having an autism fundraiser!

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and autism are both general terms for a group of complex disorders of brain development. These disorders are characterized, in varying degrees, by difficulties in social interaction, verbal and nonverbal communication and repetitive behaviors.

Did you know:

  • Males are four times more likely to have an ASD than females.
  • Experts estimate that 1 out of 88 children age 8 will have an ASD.
  • As early as infancy, a baby with ASD may be unresponsive to people or focus intently on one item to the exclusion of others for long periods of time.
  • For many children, symptoms improve with treatment and with age.
  • There is no cure for autism.

Come out and support a great cause! Proceeds from this event will go to Autism Speaks, a nonprofit organization dedicated to fundraising for autism research, awareness, and advocacy!

You can RSVP and/or donate here: http://www.TheInnerUAAHH.eventbrite.com 

TheInnerU hopes to see you there!
