Please note, I have the entire script posted in case someone wants to see the entire thing, but feel free to record as much as you'd like! What is autism? ...Autism is a developmental disorder that affects the brains ability to interact and communicate with others. Autism also affects a person's sensory information, which could cause someone to have heightened or low senses of taste, touch, sight, smell, or hearing. Because autism affects a person's sensory information, sensory overloads are a common occurrence. During an overload, noises can seem louder, smells can be stronger, and lights can seem brighter.
The rate of people diagnosed with autism is on the rise. Currently about 1 in 110 children in the United States are diagnosed with autism as opposed to 1 in twenty five hundred in just 1980. **SLIGHT PAUSE** Boys are 3 to 4 times more likely than girls to have autism. **SLIGHT PAUSE** 40% of these children will never speak a word and 25 to 30% will learn to speak and then regress back to non-verbal around 12-18 months old. **SLIGHT PAUSE** The estimated lifetime cost to care for someone with autism is $3.2 million dollars *EMPHASIS ON MILLION DOLLARS* with medical expenses costing on average 4 to 6 thousand dollars a year.
***This is the paragraph which should be more serious*** Even though an estimated 10% of children on the autism spectrum have a genetic or neurological disorder such as down syndrome, do not assume that all children who have autism are mentally challenged.
**START TO BECOME MORE UPBEAT** People with autism are not lazy. It is not a lack of intelligence or a result of poor parenting. In fact, people with autism are very intelligent and can even have special talents. An estimated 10 to 25% of people on the autism spectrum have savant abilities, meaning they have extraordinary skills or abilities. People with autism are loving, caring people. They are hardworking and dependable. And tend to pay closer attention to detail than others!
