In Recognition of Autism Awareness and Acceptance Month
In the spirit of greater awareness, understanding, and acceptance, The Help Group is pleased to share its Autism Learn the Facts – Know the Signs brochures in English and Spanish.
Today, it is estimated that autism affects 1 in every 44 children in the U.S. Autism occurs in children of all racial, ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds. Children from minority groups tend to be underdiagnosed or diagnosed later. Early identification and intensive early intervention can result in significant positive outcomes for many children with autism.
Whether the most appropriate program for a school-aged child is in special education or regular education settings, programs for children with autism should be based on each child’s unique needs. At The Help Group, we have a wide range of specialized day school programs tailored to meet our students challenges and encourage their strengths.
To help young people on the spectrum successfully transition to adulthood, there is a significant need to expand services. It is imperative that they have the opportunities to more fully realize their potential to lead more positive, productive and rewarding lives.
