All monies raised will go to directly help families affected by autism in Branson, Missouri and surrounding areas. This event is founded by Brent & Cristal Hedrick in honor of their goddaughter Shaylee O’Day. <br/></span></p> <p>A child is diagnosed as being on the autism spectrum every 15 minutes. On May 20, 2013, the CDC announced a 72 percent increase in the diagnosis of autism over the past four years. This already staggering rate is rapidly growing. Many insurance providers will not cover expenses of children on the spectrum. The Hedricks share the same goal with Shaylee’s parents Chuck & Michelle O’Day, and that is to let our local families who deal with autism on a daily basis know that there is a light at the end of the tunnel, and hopefully give them a sigh of relief. It is also very important to the Hedricks & O’Days to spread the awareness that autism is recoverable. This will be the 6th year the two families have done an autism event for the Branson area. Cristal and Michelle founded A Day for Shay & Pals in 2009.</p> <p>So, come out to Rock the Spectrum for an amazing time while doing something amazing for your community!</p> <p><span style="line-height: 1.5;">And for more information and updates, visit our </span><a style="line-height: 1.5;" href="https://www.facebook.com/events/1599235086985547/" target="_blank">Facebook page</a><span style="line-height: 1.5;">. <br/></span></p> Tue, 05 Apr 2016 14:44:22 -0700 https://generationrescue.org/events/5th-annual-rock-the-spectrum/view/2016-08-06 Sep. 30 - Oct. 02, 2016 : 3rd Annual Autism Education Summit https://generationrescue.org/events/3rd-annual-autism-education-summit/view/2016-09-30 <p>This conference for parents, professionals, and caregivers showcases how implementing a holistic approach and treating the whole individual can ease the medical conditions and behavioral symptoms common in children, adolescents, and young adults with autism spectrum disorders (ASD).</p> <p> </p> <p>Learn more and register today at <a href="http://autismeducationsummit.com" target="_blank">autismeducationsummit.com</a>.</p> <p> </p> Tue, 05 Apr 2016 15:28:58 -0700 https://generationrescue.org/events/3rd-annual-autism-education-summit/view/2016-09-30
