The rates of autism have skyrocketed over the past few decades. We don’t know exactly why this happened, but it’s the reality we face today. Sadly, a huge portion of these children grow up to be bullied every single day. It’s time this changed.
Let me connect some dots for you.......
Autism is one of the fastest growing disorders in the world today. It is estimated that 1% of the world’s population is affected in some way by autism. Tragically however, many autistic children are often tormented or bullied by their peers. In turn, they grow up fearful of others, not communicating very well and having serious difficulty with social interactions. This can lead to depression, feelings of self hatred and send a child down a dark path, sadly, some even commit suicide.
The worst thing that can happen to anyone is to become totally isolated from the rest of the world. In fact, the worst punishment a criminal could ever receive is solitary confinement and these loved ones have not committed any crimes.
This is specifically how people on the Autism Spectrum can feel if their condition isn’t met with understanding and love.
Here is what we’re looking to accomplish:
Our non profit organization, Aid4AsdKidsNow, would like to help in preventing autistic children or any child faced with a disability from being bullied. This was one of the many reasons we started our non profit.
People on the Autism Spectrum are some of the most caring and generous people you’ll ever meet in your life. What they can lack in social skills and common day interactions, they make up for in so many ways, such as unconditional love, a generalized interest in pattern recognition and sincere unblemished raw intelligence.
Did you know, some of the greatest minds behind the technology we currently use today was designed and manufactured by people on the Autism Spectrum? Many people on the spectrum are actors, singers, dancers, doctors, programmers, scientists, inventors, mathematicians and much, much more.
Many autistic children are not made aware of their special gifts, talents and abilities, so they often wind up discouraged, depressed, anxious and may never reach their potential.
The fact that people with ASD can be the victims of public scrutiny, teasing and bullying all boils down to just one thing – IGNORANCE!
Let me educate you:
Did you know that;
· Roughly 1 in 59 children have been diagnosed with ASD today.
· Boys are four times more likely to be diagnosed with autism than girls.
· The rates of autism increase by 6% to 15% every single year – making autism one of the fastest growing conditions (by far) in the world.
Every single contribution will help turn our dreams into a real tangible reality. You see, far too many children suffering with special needs including autism are bullied every single day, many people watch, will even video tape it and post it on social media, but few will try to stop it or help.
The reason for this is very simple: so many people (including children) do not even understand autism and have become desensitized to the people suffering in silence around them. Not just people with disabilities, just people who are different and stand out in the crowd. Our hope is, as the level of autism awareness rises, the rate of bullying will drop considerably.
Your contributions on this platform will directly help us put an end to the bullying once and for all. We’re going to put boots on the ground and raise real awareness through our non profit by going to schools, holding conferences and anything that will support our efforts at preventing bullying of autistic children today – so let’s shift the paradigm.
Naturally, starting a non-profit from scratch requires a tremendous amount of effort and money. Since we’re 100% funded by ourselves and outside donations, we count on people like you to fund our mission to help families affected by ASD.
We would like to take the time to thank you for your generosity and continued support.
Until Next Time,
The Aid 4 ASD Kids Now Team
