ASD Quick Facts

 

  • Approximately 1.8% of children in the U.S. have a diagnosis of autism, a rate that has more than doubled over the past two decades.

  • In 2022, people of all races and socioeconomic groups are impacted by the disorder.

  • An estimated 1 in 44 children have been diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

  •  An estimated 1 in 6 children live with learning differences and developmental challenges.

  •  More than 80% of adults with disabilities live at home and are not employed.  

  • The estimated cost to raise a child on the Spectrum from birth to 18 is $1.4MIL – $2.4MIL, conservatively $80,000 per year.

  • Government funding for therapies for children that “age out”  at the age of 18 and virtually end at 22.

 

As this epidemic surges at an alarming incline, the need for non-profits to come together to form a support ecosystem is critical.

We strive to be one of these partnering organizations making a difference - ONE HEART, ONE VOICE, ONE TALENT AT A TIME. 

The Need is Great - Please Donate to Music Movement Today!

"The ability to provide a patient with an instrument upon discharge is such a wonderful gift and opportunity for them to continue on their journey of healing and expression.  We would not be able to do that without the instruments provided to us by Music Movement. At times these patients can no longer play the sports they used to play, or be in the school play. So being able to provide them with another means of empowerment and self-expression is so important not only for the patients but for the family as well."
