In my special education practice, I represent students with a variety of
disabilities. By far the most common diagnosis I see is autism. An estimated
1 in 68 children is on the spectrum, creating tremendous demand for resources.
Unfortunately, most public school districts do not provide the level of
services that many of these students need. This makes supporting private
nonprofit organizations critical. One of the largest autism nonprofits
in the nation is Autism Speaks, which is hosting a fundraising walk in
Indianapolis Saturday, September 9 in White River State Park. This is
a great opportunity to let your child enjoy fresh air and exercise in
an accepting environment, connect with other parents and raise money for
a terrific cause. Here’s the link:

See you there!
