| The Cause |

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) affects a significant number of people and is at a 600 percent increase year after year, according to the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention. Research shows that one in 36 people today are on the spectrum, and boys are still four times as likely to be diagnosed as girls, holding steady from previous reports.

Mesa, Arizona is the first Autism Certified City in the country with over 58 businesses and almost 5,000 individuals certified through IBCCES, an independent credentialing organization who provides specialized training and certification to professionals working with individuals with autism and other cognitive disorders.
