Blow Bubbles for Autism Today with Lite Rock at ARC of Atlantic County

Blow Bubbles 4 Autism

Join me this afternoon to be part of an attempt to set a Guinness World Record.

Lite Rock will be on hand live this afternoon at the ARC of Atlantic County for the 10th annual  Blowing Bubbles for Autism with FACES 4 Autism.

Autism is a complex disorder that affects the brain’s development early in life, and is believed to have genetic and environmental causes. It interferes with a person’s ability to communicate, learn and form relationships. Behavior is often focused and repetitive.

The rate of autism in New Jersey has doubled in six years to one in 49 children — and one in 29 boys — an “epidemic increase” in a disorder that has confounded researchers for decades.

Two percent of children in the state are now identified with autism by their eighth birthday.

Nationally, one in 88 children now has autism, a jump of 78 percent between 2002 and 2008,a 2012 study found.

Today’s event is a great way of focusing attention on the increasing rate of diagnosis in New Jersey and across the nation.

I’ll be live at the ARC of Atlantic County on Delilah Road in EHT. We’ll go for the record on Blowing Bubbles today at 1:15 PM.  Hope to see you there!

The Arc of Atlantic County is a private non-profit organization that has been making a difference in the lives of people with intellectual and developmental disabilities and their families since our founding in 1961.
