In recent years, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) has become more widely diagnosed due to an increase in research and awareness. Now, this does not mean that the presence of ASD has necessarily surged over time, it really means that we are more aware than ever of how prevalent it is generally. On a national level, researchers have found that there are over 5.4 million adults living with ASD and that over 40,000 of those individuals are living in North Carolina.
Autism Society of North Carolina (ASNC) states that “Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) refers to a group of developmental disabilities that are typically associated with challenges of varying severity in the areas of social interaction, communication, and repetitive/restricted behaviors.” This unique experience often leaves individuals with ASD with a lack of resources and support. Thankfully, ASNC has made it their dedicated mission to meet those unique needs by setting out to improve “the lives of individuals with autism, supports their families, and educates communities.”
It is for that reason that our team here at Farley Insurance Group has enthusiastically decided to support the Autism Society of North Carolina for our next community cause campaign! We want to ensure that the individuals with ASD in our very own community feel seen and supported. To do that, we’re pledging to donate $10 on your behalf for every person you recommend to our agency for a no-obligation quote – yes, every single one! So, what do you say? Let’s complete this puzzle and support our community!
