We can all make a difference in the life of someone with [an Autism Spectrum Disorder.]

      ...Many of our Employees volunteered their time for this event and we are thankful for the consistent commitment to this cause! Over the last several years our organization has become connected to the ASNC in a unique way, and we look forward to seeing and hearing all the great stories as a result of their efforts. Our folks have truly seen with their own eyes the impact the ASNC makes within the local community and across the State.

      In addition to the volunteering, the Premiere team is also donating a fully restored [1960s automobile] to be raffled off in an effort to raise additional funds in support of the ASNC and the many resources they offer.

      • The subject of the post from a couple of days ago was Ottawa, Ontario, Canada being home to an annual Walk for Autism Speaks Canada. Autism Speaks is North America's leading Autism science and advocacy organisation.

        In Australia, the Autism Association of Western Australia is a Perth-based nonprofit that provides services to individuals, including children, affected by Autism. The programs the nonprofit develops are best-practice and based on leading international peer-reviewed research in the field of Autism...
        [Perth metorpolitan area] resident Christopher Hummel was one of the winners in the Arts and Autism art competition.

        The artist was one of 16 winners in the Autism Association of [Western Australia] and Art Gallery of [Western Australia's] competition for his painting, Graffiti In Argentina.

        “Art means being creative, and it also allows me to relax,” he said.

        “I love learning about different countries and accents and I love graffiti and that’s why I put it all together and paint graffiti trains from around the world.”

        The Autism Association, [the Art Gallery of Western Australia] and its Voluntary Gallery Guides recently launched a partnership to [make arts more inclusive for individuals affected by Autism.]

        The partnership is the first program through [the Art Gallery of Western Australia's] Quiet Tuesday initiative, which provides access for community groups on Tuesdays when the gallery is closed to the general public.

        [The initiative includes] low sensory spaces.

        Hummel welcomed an initiative, saying it would make gallery visits more enjoyable and less stressful.

        “I won’t become so overwhelmed,” he said.

        Autism Association chief executive Joan McKenna Kerr said everyone should feel comfortable in public spaces.

        “We are thrilled to be part of this partnership to make public spaces inclusive and welcoming to everyone, in particular, people with autism,” she said...

          • The subject of the post from nearly a week ago was Ottawa, Ontario, Canada being home to an annual Walk for Autism Speaks Canada. Autism Speaks is North America's leading Autism science and advocacy organisation.

            To the southwest, Colorado is also home to an annual Walk for Autism Speaks​...
            When parents are told their child is not developing like other children it is not unusual for parents to go through a range of emotions. They often experience disbelief, denial, anger, worry, even guilt.

            But 7Everyday Hero Heidi Wateurs helps provide a bridge so parents understand they are not alone.

            In May of this year, [many] people came out to Infinity Park in Glendale for the Autism Speaks Walk. Autism Speaks is a national nonprofit that provides funding for research and education about autism spectrum disorders.

            "One third of all children who are affected by autism are going to be nonverbal," Wateurs said.

            Hence the name Autism Speaks.
            "We have got to be their voice. And that's why we're Autism Speaks. We are the families who are talking for them," Wateurs said.

            And walking for them.

            "I walked for my daughter. She is an amazing little girl. She is 13 years old and she is a part of the autism community, Wateurs said.


            Wateurs was one of the leading fundraisers for the Denver walk this year.

            'I am a single mom. I had no idea what autism was until I got the diagnosis. I was scared. So it became my new mission to go out and raise some money and help families and to help my family," Wateurs said.

            ...Ironically, the challenges that often come with an autism spectrum disorder can leave [the individuals impacted by Autism] feeling isolated.

            "One of the biggest problems is that you can become very alone when you have a child with autism because there are behaviors that don't work well with big crowds," Wateurs said.

            That is why Wateurs relentlessly volunteers for Autism Speaks. She knows the more we all know about autism, the better for everyone.

            "Their block, their obstacle is their nervous system is running all the time causing them to have to take that step back from you. You're thinking it's isolation or them not wanting to be in your life, but that is not true. They want to be in your life, but we're going to have to learn as a community how to bridge that gap. And that's what I am hoping to do," Wateurs said.

                To the southwest, Dufferin County in Ontario, Canada is also home to an annual Walk for Autism Speaks Canada...
                The annual Autism Speaks Canada Walk is returning to [Dufferin County]...

                The fun filled event is in its sixth year and takes place this Sunday (Sept. 25) at Fendley Park from 10 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. The walk ...is open for everyone to enjoy [and] not just individuals with a personal connection to autism.

                “You don’t have to have an autism connection,” said Karrie Daponte, walk organizer. “People assume they shouldn’t come because they don’t have connection but that’s what this event is for… the walk is all about learning to accept them [people with autism]. Not just include them, but accept them.”

                For the event, Fendley Park will feature ...several vendors, ...prize draws, live music, and free food/refreshments.

                The park will also feature a children’s area...

                Dance Ability Movement, which teaches dance to individuals who are neurodiverse, will be at the event for a performance.

                TSN Towing and charitable motorcycle group, Qwest Riders, who participated in the local Walk on Wheels Car Parade for Autism Speaks Canada in 2021 will be at the event as well.

                Daponte said that the Autism Speaks Canada Walk is a judgement free space and a great opportunity for children with [various challenges, including Autism Spectrum Disorders] to feel welcome and have fun.

                “A lot of [those closest to children with Autism] don’t feel comfortable taking the kids up in the community… but this is somewhere where everybody can go,” she noted.

                Daponte’s daughter, Yazime Wilson-Daponte is this year’s Autism Speaks Canada ambassador for [the Dufferin County area.]

                She’s been fundraising for this year’s walk since February [and so] far, Wilson-Daponte has generated around $1,000.

                Her team shirt for the autism walk reads “Born to Stand Out”...

                The walk has been made possible through many generous sponsors in the community who have both donated monetarily and offered products in-kind.

                Tim Hortons, McDonalds, PepsiCo, and Pure Water Canada are providing free drinks, Lavender Blue Catering is providing free snacks, and [a local pizza restaurant] will be handing out free pizza.

                Goodie bags filled with coupons and items from local businesses and crafters are also being provided to [many of] the first ...attendees.

                “...it’s a community event for everyone… all ages,” Daponte noted.

                The event is [going to be held,] rain or shine.

                  • The subject of the post from just over a week ago was Ottawa, Ontario, Canada being home to an annual Walk for Autism Speaks Canada. Autism Speaks is North America's leading Autism science and advocacy organisation.

                    To the south, Kingston, Ontario is also home to an annual Walk for Autism Speaks Canada...
                    Queen’s University students hosted the first-ever Autism Speaks Canada walk at City Park on Sunday morning.

                    “We saw that Queen’s didn’t really have the support that was necessary for autism in the Queen’s and Kingston communities, that’s what we felt,” Michael Turner, co-president of the Autism Speaks Canada chapter at Queen’s University.

                    The Queen’s club was founded two years ago, and this is its first year hosting the national fundraising walk.

                    The club hosts events during autism awareness week in April.

                    “We’ve been trying to raise awareness and fundraise money,” Turner said.

                    Turner has spent much of his life volunteering alongside his mom working with children on the spectrum.

                    He co-founded the club with his co-president, Jacob Portnoff.

                    “I’ve met a lot of great children that are on the spectrum, and I’ve seen that they need more [assistance], and not a lot of people truly understand how important it is and how prevalent it is in society,” Turner said.

                    The club has around 80 members, Turner said. Those members not only raise funds for Autism Speaks Canada but also volunteer in the community with organizations like the Maltby Centre.

                    “We volunteered last year with the Limestone District School Board. We’ve had our volunteers in there getting first-hand experience with children on the spectrum,” Turner said.

                    Turner hoped the event would raise [a small but significant amount] by the end of the day. The money goes to Autism Speaks Canada.

                    The walk will take place again in 2020.

                      Every April, people around the world join together to raise awareness as well as increase understanding of people with autism.

                      Raymond Elementary School will be recognizing this day on Thursday, March 31. Students are invited to wear a BLUE shirt on Thursday and bring a small donation to go towards the Walk For Autism campaign. Together as a school, we will be participating in a walk to show our support.

                      Autism Awareness Day is a day to recognize all those individuals around the world who live on the autism spectrum. ...Our school will be wearing blue on April 1 in support of understanding and acceptance for people with autism. (Actual day is April 2).

                      Autism spectrum disorder ...and autism are both general terms for a group of complex disorders of brain development. These disorders are characterized, in varying degrees, by difficulties in social interaction, verbal and nonverbal communication, and repetitive behaviors. They include autistic disorder, Rett syndrome, childhood disintegrative disorder, pervasive developmental disorder-not otherwise specified (PDD-NOS), and Asperger syndrome. ASD can be associated with intellectual disability, difficulties in motor coordination and attention, and physical health issues such as sleep and gastrointestinal disturbances.

                      Each individual with autism is unique. Many of those on the autism spectrum have exceptional abilities in visual skills, music, and academic skills. (austimspeaks.org School Community Tool Kit)

                                To the south, the Autism Society of North Carolina is a North Carolina-based nonprofit that provides services to individuals affected by Autism...
                                A [large] crowd ...turned out to the UNCW Track and Field Complex Saturday morning for the 2022 Coastal Walk/Run for Autism.

                                Hosted by the Autism Society of North Carolina, the event helps raise funds for programs and services to improve the lives of individuals with autism in southeastern North Carolina.

                                [Many] people registered for the morning’s running and walking events, which included a [running event that went through] the UNCW campus and a 1-mile fun run/walk around the track. Several members of the Seahawks’ Men’s Basketball team spent time with the crowd, posing for pictures with fans.

                                Many providers set up information booths next to the track, where they were able to answer questions on their services that covered physical and developmental areas.

                                Organizers say they expected to raise more than $50,000 from the event for the Autism Society of NC, which is the leading statewide resource organization serving people across the autism spectrum throughout their lifetimes. Proceeds will stay in this area to help children and adults with autism learn new skills and make friends, allow families to attend workshops or support groups to better care for their children, and provide adults with autism the tools they need to become employed and build fulfilling lives.

                                WECT was a sponsor for the event.
