Autism Awareness: Living on Both Ends of the Spectrum – Kansas City Moms Blog
On average, Autism affects 1 in every 68 children, and 1 in 42 boys, according to Autism Speaks. It is one of the fastest-growing developmental disorders in the United States, and can costs families upward of $60,000 per year. And currently there is no cure or medical detection for Autism.
As part of National Autism Awareness Month, we talked with Cassidi Jobe, a local mom whose two sons are both on the Autism Spectrum. Cassidi is a community advocate and owner of We Rock The Spectrum Kids Gym – KC.
