Autism is not a disease, but a developmental disorder of brain function.
People with classical autism show three types of symptoms: impaired social interaction, problems with verbal and nonverbal communication, and unusual or severely limited activities and interests.
autism usually appear during the first three years of childhood and continue throughout life. Although there is no cure, appropriate early educational intervention may improve social development and reduce undesirable behaviors. People with autism have a normal life expectancy.
It's time to "draw" attention to Autism -the struggles, the challenges, the wonderment.
Breaking UP Walls has been highly successful the past 2 years sharing their A R T therapy with those living with Autism.
Mentoring Through Art has become the conduit for learning and as a result we have decided to offer this FREE fun filled day of innovation, collaboration, learning, sharing, commingled with a few tears to Arizona.
