Autism Answers Recognizes Autism Awareness Month in April With Roc Campaign!

Oakland, CA (BlackNews.com) — The month of April is Autism Awareness Month and Oakland-based Autism Answers is doing its part locally with its “Recognizing Our Children” campaign, which helps raise awareness, garner research funds, and give a voice to local families and children with autism.

Autism Answers’ mission is to create solutions to the challenges facing children on the autism spectrum and their families through:

* Raising the awareness of autism

* Strengthening children and parental rights

* Finding global education and medical solutions

* Increasing “Diversity & Inclusion” for children and families that are disadvantaged socially and economically

A major goal of Autism Answers is to provide children and adults on the autism spectrum quality housing, and schools that meet the needs of the whole child! Additionally, Autism Answers plans research into how parasites are influencing the behaviors and outcomes for children and adults on the autism spectrum. Through its ROC campaign it will be able to continue to raise awareness and advocate for resources to help families achieve quality housing and schools that meet the needs of the whole child; plus conduct research to unfold the role of parasites and GI disorders of individuals on the autism spectrum.

Autism Answers encourages individuals to join them in “Recognizing Our Children” this April and purchase a t-shirt at www.booster.com/autismanswers. This effort will help children and families affected by autism through our LEAD initiative for change in housing, education, and treatment of autism symptoms. Proceeds from tee-shirt purchases will help Autism Answers assist families and children affected by autism spectrum disorders (ASDs).

Why Black and Green? Green is the color of nature, it naturally infers growth, and represents rebirth and renews and restores depleted energy. Green is the sanctuary away from the stresses of modern living, and restores us back to a sense of well-being. Black is symbolic of power and self-control, it is indicative of independence and strong will power. These colors represent the families in the autism community.
