Autism Awareness Month Goodera

“Want to be free. Want to be me. Trying to make people see. And accept the real me.” – Scott Lentine

1 in 44 children in the U.S. is diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder. 

Autism affects all ethnic and socioeconomic groups. However, minority groups are the most affected since they receive diagnoses later and less often.

Early medical assistance ensures the best opportunity to support healthier and better development across the individual’s lifespan.

Goodera has made a detailed list of nonprofits working to help create a better and more inclusive world for individuals on the spectrum.

1. Autism Association aims to help individuals on the spectrum lead quality lives.

The Autism Association is one of the Social Service Agencies of Singapore. It focuses on supporting and helping people that are on the autism spectrum. This organization’s goal is to lend a helping hand in maximizing these individuals’ potential and help them lead better, meaningful lives. Their services encompass education, vocational and life skills training, and residential care.
