We couldn’t be more proud to support and speak out for the Autism spectrum disorder, often referred to as ASD, that affects 1 in 68 children (and boys, 1 in 42). In doing so, we recognize the world’s leading research and advocacy organization that meets the severe communication and social interaction challenges created by ASD. The disorder manifests itself in restrictive or repetitive behavior patterns to varying degrees.
