Did you know that 1 in 44 children in the U.S. is diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder?

In 2008, the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities entered into force, reaffirming the fundamental principle of universal human rights for all. Its purpose is to promote, protect, and ensure the full and equal enjoyment of all human rights and fundamental freedoms by all persons with disabilities, and to promote respect for their inherent dignity.

The United Nations General Assembly unanimously declared April 2nd as World Autism Awareness Day to highlight the need to help improve the quality of life of those with autism so they can lead full and meaningful lives as an integral part of society.

At Independence Now we strive to serve people with ANY disability. Today on Autism Awareness Day, we want to recognize and celebrate the unique strengths and talents of individuals on the autism spectrum. Let’s work together to create a world where everyone feels valued and supported.
