Did you know that more than 3.5 million Americans live with an autism spectrum disorder? And, since 2000, the prevalence of autism in U.S. children has increased by 119.4 percent, from 1 in 150 in 2000 to 1 in 68 in 2010. In fact, the CDC lists autism as the fastest-growing developmental disability.
As we approach Autism Awareness Month (April), we’re proud to announce our support for the Nassau/Suffolk Autism Society of America!
Each of our offices will be participating in this year’s puzzle piece heart campaign and starting TODAY, March 29, we will be accepting donations to help make a difference for individuals with autism!
During your next visit, donate a $1 (or more!) and sign your name in one of these puzzle piece hearts to hang in our office. We will match ALL donations 1:1 and even give an extra dollar for each NEW LIKE or FOLLOWER we receive on our social media channels (Facebook, Twitter and Instagram)! All donations will go toward social and recreational events for individuals with autism on Long Island.
We are proud to be supporting such a phenomenal charity and truly believe that together we can make a difference!
