We, The ACTION JACKSON’S, want to bring AWARENESS, SUPPORT, AND RESEARCH, to families who have individuals in their families with AUTISM, in Airdrie, and Calgary area. AUTISM is on the rise, 1 in 69, have been diagnosed with Autism.
Brenda Jackson’s son, who is now 10 years old, along with so many other children in Airdrie, has Autism.Autism knows no racial, ethnic, social boundaries, or lifestyle, and can affect any family, any child, at any time. THERE IS NO CURE.
Autism is a complex mental developmental disability that typically appears during the first three years of life. The Doctors and Scientists feel Autism is the result of a neurological disorder that affects the normal functioning of the brain or some say it could be caused by too many vaccinations at one time given to babies, or maybe the environment, there is no proof what causes Autism, which can impact development in the brain, in the areas of social interaction, behavior problems and communication skills. Getting a diagnosis of Autism early, for a child, is very important, it can be a very difficult period, for families. Perhaps the most important step after the diagnosis is to begin Early Childhood Intervention therapy. AUTISM is a vast spectrum and affects each person differently at various degrees.
There is only so much time you have to (open the window for the children) to get them help. We The ACTION JACKSON’S want to help families with AUTISM in Airdrie, Calgary area.
GIVE BIG” to Autism! LET US HELP THE KIDS Let our Family help your family!!!
