For the last two years, Achievement Products® has partnered with the Autism Speaks® foundation to donate 10% on select items purchased during the month of April to this important organization. We are happy to announce that we will be doing the same thing this fall!
Our customers now have the opportunity to contribute to Autism Speaks® with all purchases made from the Achievement Products® Gift Guide through December 15, 2013. With each order, 10% of the purchase price will go toward funding research for the causes, treatments and the prevention of autism. Autism Speaks®, also dedicated to finding a cure for autism, is the world’s leading autism organization and through their efforts have greatly increased the general public’s awareness of autism spectrum disorders. The foundation truly is an unlimited resource for those with autism and their families.
The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report that Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) affects over 2 million individuals in the United States and tens of millions worldwide. Around 1 in 88 American children are identified as being on the autism spectrum, which is a ten-fold increase over the last 40 years.
