Autism Awareness

by Beatriz Guadarrama




Campaign has ended


As a parent of a child with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), I know firsthand the challenges that families face when navigating this complex condition. When my son was first diagnosed, I was scared and felt alone. I didn't know what autism was, and I didn't know where to turn for help.

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a developmental disorder that affects communication, social interaction, and behavior. Individuals with ASD may have difficulty communicating, socializing, and understanding social cues. They may also exhibit repetitive behaviors or have intense interest in specific topics. These individuals can benefit from early diagnosis, intervention, and support. That's why I am starting this campaign for autism awareness. Did you know that one in 36 children has been identified with ASD according to estimates from the CDC's autism and developmental disabilities monitoring (ADDM) Network? My goal is to raise awareness and share knowledge about ASD so that other families don't have to feel the same way I did.

I believe that everyone, including law enforcement personnel, can benefit from a better understanding of ASD and how to interact with individuals who have the condition. That is why I am also advocating for law enforcement training in dealing with ASD individuals. It is equally important to provide parent training in developing pre-plans for critical incidents involving their loved ones with ASD before contacting law enforcement.

As part of this campaign, I am raising money for the 2023 Autism Society Inland Empire autism acceptance walk, an organization that provides resources and support for individuals with autism and their families. Your donation would help fund important programs and initiatives that improve the lives of those affected by ASD. With the right resources and support, individuals with ASD canhrive and make a meaningful contribution to their communities.

Together, we can make a difference in the lives of individuals with autism. Please consider making a donation to support this important cause.

Thank you in advance for your support!
