Support Autism Awareness
Did you know? *
- 1 percent of the population of children in the U.S. ages 3-17 have an autism spectrum disorder.
- Prevalence of autism is estimated at 1 in 110 births.
- 1 to 1.5 million Americans live with an autism spectrum disorder.
- Autism is one of the fastest-growing developmental disability; 1,148% growth rate.
Support a great cause and spread awareness about a disorder that affects so many! You can help support Autism Awareness efforts with this print scrub top from Scrub Works featuring the international symbol for autism — colorful, interlocking puzzle pieces. Scrub Works will make a donation for each Autism Awareness scrub top that is purchased. Look great AND support a great cause! As someone who worked with autistic children for six years, I know the struggles that these children and families go through on a daily basis. There is still so much that is unknown about autism, its causes and how to prevent it but it all starts with awareness!
