“Learning Through Laughter and Friendship”
Autism now affects 1 in 54 children and is more than 4 times common in boys than girls. About 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.
Autism is the fastest growing serious developmental disability in the U.S.
Autism costs a family $60,000 a year on average (ABA Therapy, etc.).
Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, we were unable to host our annual summer camp last year. However, we are planning a 2021 summer camp on a smaller scale consisting of a maximum of 12 students. Parents of students who have been selected to participate will be notified via email no later than April 5th, 2021.
