Corporate News: Reaching Out Autism Walk

Autism Speaks Walk

On April 12, 2008, American Traveler corporate employees participated in the Walk Now for Autism to help raise money for the nation’s top private funding organization of autism research. The walk took place in Broward County, at Nova Southeastern University Sherman Library Green, Davie, Florida.

Autism is a complex neurobiological disorder that typically lasts throughout a person's lifetime. It is part of a group of disorders known as autism spectrum disorders (ASD). Today, 1 in 150 individuals is diagnosed with autism, making it more common than pediatric cancer, diabetes, and AIDS combined. It occurs in all racial, ethnic, and social groups and is four times more likely to strike boys than girls. Autism impairs a person's ability to communicate and relate to others. It is also associated with rigid routines and repetitive behaviors, such as obsessively arranging objects or following very specific routines. Symptoms can range from very mild to quite severe.

American Traveler supports important healthcare issues that fund research to find cures, promote awareness, and show our support to the families that are affected by the compromising symptoms of serious illnesses.
