Houston Texans Star Players Ahman Green and Matt Schaub Help Easter Seals, Avondale House and Local Families 'Tackle Autism'
Date:9/7/2007

HOUSTON, Sept. 7 /PRNewswire/ -- Two professional football players, running back Ahman Green and quarterback Matt Schaub, will announce during a press conference scheduled for Tuesday, September 11, 2007 that they are teaming with Easter Seals and Avondale House to launch the new Houston Tackles Autism campaign. The city of Houston has welcomed both marquee players with open arms and Green and Schaub would like to give back to the community by raising $1 million to help local children and families living with autism.

"I look forward to working with the Houston Community, Easter Seals and Avondale House to make sure that we are a winner in this battle against autism," said Green.

Help for Houston Families Today

Many Houston families are forced to wait nearly a year to receive an autism diagnosis for their child. Without an autism diagnosis, children miss out on the critical benefits of receiving the earliest treatment possible and placement in special early childhood programs that address a child's medical, physical, behavioral, sensory, nutritional, communication, and developmental needs.

While there's still no known cause or cure, autism is treatable. People with autism can and do live meaningful lives. That's where Easter Seals and Avondale House come in.

The Game Plan

As the leading provider of services for children and adults with autism in the country, Easter Seals is partnering with Avondale House, a 30-year Houston organization, to increase the autism services available for children in the Houston area. The two organizations will work together to assist families in providing access to an accurate and earlier diagnosis, as well as recommendations for appropriate treatment and available community services. From proceeds raised through Houston Tackles Autism, Easter Seals and Avondale House will help hundreds of Houston area children and families living with autism.
