Filomena Laforgia, Founder/CEO of Filanthropists.com, said: “Autism or Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a neurological disorder that impacts the normal development of the brain in the areas of social interaction, communication skills, and cognitive function. Since autism was first diagnosed in the U.S. the rate of occurrence has climbed to an alarming ratio of 1 in 110 children. As a mother of a child with autism, I’m committed to raising awareness of this condition.”
