As Autism Awareness Month Ends, See These Signs

Autism Puzzle Piece

As the end of April arrives, International Autism Awareness month ends, but clearly, autism’s reach across all spectrums of society does not. Much like sports, it knows no boundaries, reaching  all races, creeds, colors, and socioeconomic classes.

The Business of Sports Network has spent each of the last three years actively involved in autism awareness, and we plan to continue those efforts. We wish to give special thanks to Autism Speaks for lending assistance in our campaign, and extra special thanks to those below in the sports and entertainment industries who lent their names to the Business of Sports Network Autism Awareness Campaign. But, before we get to that, this is what is of critical importance. Please, pass this information along so that others might be aware of autism’s pervasive reach:

Here is how the Autism Society of America describes autism:

Autism is a complex developmental disability that typically appears during the first three years of life and affects a person’s ability to communicate and interact with others. Autism is defined by a certain set of behaviors and is a "spectrum disorder" that affects individuals differently and to varying degrees. There is no known single cause for autism, but increased awareness and funding can help families today.

Autism is treatable. Children do not "outgrow" autism, but studies show that early diagnosis and intervention lead to significantly improved outcomes.

Here are some signs to look for in the children in your life:

  • Lack of or delay in spoken language
  • Repetitive use of language and/or motor mannerisms (e.g., hand-flapping, twirling objects)
  • Little or no eye contact
  • Lack of interest in peer relationships
  • Lack of spontaneous or make-believe play
  • Persistent fixation on parts of objects

The following information is provided by Autism Speaks:


Did you know ...

  • Autism now affects 1 in 110 children and 1 in 70 boys
  • Autism prevalence figures are growing
  • More children will be diagnosed with autism this year than with AIDS, diabetes & cancer combined
  • Autism is the fastest-growing serious developmental disability in the U.S.
  • Autism costs the nation over $35 billion per year, a figure expected to significantly increase in the next decade
  • Autism receives less than 5% of the research funding of many less prevalent childhood diseases
  • Boys are four times more likely than girls to have autism
  • There is no medical detection or cure for autism

Prevalence vs. Private Funding

  • Leukemia: Affects 1 in 1,200 / Funding: $277 million
  • Muscular Dystrophy: Affects 1 in 100,000 / Funding: $162 million
  • Pediatric AIDS: Affects 1 in 300 / Funding: $394 million
  • Juvenile Diabetes: Affects 1 in 500 / Funding: $156 million
  • Autism: Affects 1 in 110 / Funding: $79 million

National Institutes of Health Funds Allocation

  • Total 2009 NIH budget: $35.9 billion
  • Of this, only $196 million goes directly to autism research. This represents 0.5% of total NIH funding.

IF YOU ARE WITHIN THE MEDIA, WE ENCOURAGE YOU TO JOIN THE CAMPAIGN, AS WELL AS AUTISM SPEAKS EFFORTS. LINK OR REPURPOSE THIS MATERIAL TO HELP THE CAUSE.

The following have lent their name in saying they support autism awareness, if you wish to be added to the list, please contact Maury Brown, president of the Business of Sports Network, for more details.

Last year, Autism Speaks ran a series of Public Service Announcements to promote autism awareness. The series outlines how prevalent autism is, and why funding is needed to find its causes.

And remember... this was published last year. The numbers released by the CDC are now 1 in 110 children with 1 in 70 being boys (for more data and symptoms on autism, see here).

As part of World Autism Awareness Day, and the Business of Sports Network Autism Awareness Campaign, we present the ad:
