Let’s join together and help these families SMILE!
We would like to bring awareness about Autism Spectrum Disorder in the African American Communities. Our goal is to raise $50,000.00 to educate and provide support to the African American parents of Autistic children.
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a developmental disability that can cause significant social, communication and behavioral challenges. According to the National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities and Center for Disease Control, thirty percent of African American Children are less likely to be identified with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
A portion of the proceeds will benefit the AUTISM IN BLACKOrganization. AUTISM IN BLACK aims to provide support to African American parents who have a child on the spectrum, through educational and advocacy services. AUTISM IN BLACK is dedicated to bringing awareness to Autism Spectrum Disorder and reducing the stigma associated with ASD in the black community.
S.M.I.L.E. is actively working to create solutions and solve the problems that our Autism Spectrum Disorder Communities are facing. Our efforts won’t reach their maximum effectiveness unless we have the backing of the entire community.
