Easter Seals Notes April's Autism Awareness Month to Highlight Services Available to Families Living With Autism
Date:4/1/2008

h autism face many road blocks that prevent them from getting the help they need today. The current systems, structures and resources to help people with autism and their families do not adequately meet the growing need:

-- funding for research, therapy and services is largely inadequate;

-- quality services -- especially for adults -- are limited;

-- unemployment among adults with autism persists; and,

-- general knowledge and understanding gaps about autism prevail.

"Services for children with autism who age out of the school system are critical. There is an urgent need for increased funding and services -- especially for adults with autism," says Morales. "We want to help change all of this and make a difference for families living with autism today."

Easter Seals has partnered with the Autism Society of America (ASA) on innovative initiatives to serve all those affected by autism.

"After age 21, federal services often disappear for our citizens, but Easter Seals is there to help," said Lee Grossman, president and chief executive officer, Autism Society of America. "We are excited that Easter Seals is highlighting autism among their services and supports."
