Autism Speaks is dedicated to promoting solutions for the needs of individuals with autism and their families. The nonprofit provides advocacy and support and aims to increase understanding and acceptance of people with autism spectrum disorder. Autism Speaks is dedicated to advancing research into causes and better interventions for autism spectrum disorder and related conditions.
“We are honored to support this incredible cause that continues to impact the lives of so many. We are committed to supporting innovative research and raising awareness,” said Stephen Shanton, CEO and president of Venture Construction Group of Florida (VCGFL).
According to Autism Speaks, 1 in 44 children in the U.S. is diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Signs of autism usually appear by age 2 or 3. Some associated development delays can appear even earlier, and often, it can be diagnosed as early as 18 months. Early intervention affords the best opportunity to support healthy development and deliver benefits across the lifespan. Some people with ASD may require significant support in their daily lives, while others may need less support and, in some cases, live entirely independently. Autism Speaks has funded nearly $234M, primarily in scientific grants, resulting in an additional $1B of publicly-sourced autism-related funding.
The Autism Speaks Walk is the world’s largest fundraising event dedicated to improving the lives of people with autism. Together with parents, grandparents, siblings, friends, relatives and providers who support them, there is no limit to what we can do; and the funds raised help ensure people of all abilities have access to the tools needed to lead their best lives. VCGFL is an award-winning construction and restoration company committed to giving back and supports numerous organizations each year.
