Video Podcast- Insight into Autism: A Spotlight on Autism Speaks

Today, it is estimated that one of every 110 children is diagnosed with autism, making it more common than childhood cancer, juvenile diabetes and pediatric AIDS combined. Community Health Charities is partnering with member charity Autism Speaks for a discussion about the challenges parents face when dealing with an unexpected diagnosis of autism and the many medical, lifestyle, social and emotional issues surrounding the care of their child. Cathy Kanefsky, mother of twin boys with autism and Vice President, Field and Chapter Development for Autism Speaks, shares her  personal story and professional insight on what parents can expect and where to turn for help.

 

Click here on April 15th to watch a free video podcast on autism. This podcast provides parents with information on how to access resources to help them build a network of support and how to be proactive in the health care of their children.

 

About Autism Speaks

Autism Speaks was founded in February 2005 by Bob and Suzanne Wright, grandparents of a child with autism. Since then, Autism Speaks has grown into the nation's largest autism science and advocacy organization. Autism Speaks is dedicated to funding research into the causes, prevention, treatments and a cure for autism; increasing awareness of autism spectrum disorders; and advocating for the needs of individuals with autism and their families. Autism Speaks brings hope to all who deal with the hardships of this disorder. Autism Speaks also aims to bring the autism community together as one strong voice to urge the government and private sector to listen to our concerns and take action to address this urgent global health crisis.  To learn more about Autism Speaks in your community visit www.autismspeaks.org.
