“Learning Through Laughter and Friendship”
Autism now affects 1 in 44 children and is more than 4 times common in boys than girls.
1 in 27 boys identified with autism
1 in 116 girls identified with autism
1 in 6 (17%) children aged 3–17 years were diagnosed with a developmental disability, as reported by parents, during a study period of 2009-2017. These included autism, attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, blindness, and cerebral palsy, among others.
Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, we were unable to host our annual summer camp programs in 2020, 2021 and 2022. However, plans are in place to host our 2023 summer camp program on a smaller scale consisting of a maximum of 30 students. Details regarding summer camp 2023 will be posted on our website as soon as plans have been solidified.
