The American Psychiatric Association defines autism spectrum disorder (ASD) as “a complex developmental condition that involves persistent challenges in social interaction, speech and nonverbal communication, and restricted/repetitive behaviors.” ASD can present itself differently in each person and the severity of the accompanying symptoms can vary as well. In recent years, the number of persons diagnosed with autism has increased due to a surge in research and awareness, leaving a larger number of children without the specific support and resources that they might need.
Little Friends was created to provide that support and resources to not only children with ASD but to anyone of any age, as well as those experiencing intellectual and emotional disabilities. They are based in Illinois and they empower “families to live, learn, work and thrive in their communities.” The work that this organization does allows the individuals in Illinois with ASD to become active, fulfilled, and successful members of our community. Little Friends provides a multitude of services including community services, residential services, school programs, training, and even therapeutic services.
At Richter Insurance, we want to do everything possible in order to support our community, especially those that need that support the most. That’s why we are pledging to donate $10 on your behalf to Little Friends for every recommendation you make to us for a no-obligation quote! And we’re extending this donation for EVERY single person you recommend. So, how many names can you give?
