Autism Speaks

For her Giving Back charity for the month of December, Melissa Organ chose Autism Speaks. Melissa shared with us:

“I would like to choose Autism Speaks for my giving back charity pick. Autism Speaks supports the research that goes into finding a cause for autism, help families with advocacy and support, and looks for enhanced intervention programs for people with autism. My brother has autism and I used to work for special school district. I know firsthand how worrisome it is and how helpless youfeel when you have your affected family member facing the world with a disability. Autism speaks is wonderful at raising awareness of Autism and educating people on their resources. This organization promotes research in helping those affected with life skills and intervention programs.
