About The Walk For Autism
Autism is a developmental disorder that strikes children sometime in the first three years of life and impacts the normal development of the brain in areas of cognition, social interaction and communication skills. Each child is affected differently and to varying degrees. According to recent studies, as many as one in every 88 children born today will be on the autistic spectrum. Autism is now the third most common developmental disorderómore common than Down Syndrome, multiple sclerosis or cystic fibrosis. Autism is treatable with various treatments and therapies. Current research is limited due to a lack of available funds.
The Autism Society of Maine was founded by a group of parents and professionals in 1976. ASM is a grassroots organization and is a chapter of the Autism Society. Proceeds from this event will help fund our summer camp for children with autism spectrum disorder, family retreat weekend, our autism information specialist program, and more. Please help us raise awareness of autism and how it affects individuals in our communities in Maine.
This event will happen rain or shine.
