All funds raised support FEAT programs for children with autism, including the Dreams in Motion summer camp for children with autism. Autism is a complex neurological disorder that typically surfaces prior to age three. Affected children generally lack appropriate social engagement, have significant communication impairments, and often demonstrate repetitive behaviors due to sensory dysfunction. Autism is the fastest growing developmental disability today, affecting a startling 1 in 110 children.
