         Proclamation

 

Whereas, autism is a general term used to describe a group of complex developmental brain disorders – autism spectrum disorders – caused by a combination of genes and environmental influences. These disorders are characterized, in varying degrees, by social and behavioral challenges, as well as repetitive behaviors; and

 

Whereas, an estimated 1 in 88 children in the U.S. is on the autism spectrum – a 600 percent increase in the past two decades that is only partly explained by improved diagnosis; and

Whereas, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have called autism a national public health crisis whose cause and cure remain unknown; and

 

Whereas,  on December 18, 2007 the United Nations General Assembly adopted resolution 62/139 World Autism Awareness Day by unanimous consent, encouraging UN Member States to take measures to raise awareness about autism throughout society and to promote early diagnosis and early behavioral intervention;

Whereas the aims for World Autism Awareness Day are to inform the general public about the global health crisis of autism, stress the importance of early diagnosis and early intervention, and to celebrate the unique talents and qualities of individuals with autism;

Whereas autism is a lifelong condition in which the bulk of cost falls in adulthood, creating an enormous economic impact.

Now therefore, I, Adrian J. Febre, Mayor of the Borough of Maywood, County of Bergen in the State of New Jersey, do hereby proclaim Thursday, April 2, 2015, as World Autism Awareness Day and the Month of April 2015, as Autism Awareness Month.
