ism Speaks. "We are incredibly grateful to Ernie Els and his family for agreeing to help spread our message of awareness and the critical importance of early diagnosis and intervention."

The new PSAs build on the success of the first round of the award-winning Autism Awareness campaign which launched in April 2006, and has received more than $178.2 million in donated media.

Our goal was to couch that startling statistic in a story that pulls a viewer in so that when those odds are revealed, we have his or her full attention.

According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), autism is the fastest- growing developmental disorder in the United States, with life-long consequences for individuals, family, and society. This complex brain disorder inhibits a person's
