It is estimated that 1 in 68 births is diagnosed with autism. (CDC, 2014). Autism is a life long developmental disorder, and as yet there is no cure. Raise awareness with Charlotte View, listen and share. In 2006, Mariame Boujlil, a mother of a child with Autism Spectrum Disorder, founded the 501(c)(3), non profit organization, "World Alliance for Families & Children" WAFAC, Inc. With over 100 members it holds the mission to support individuals with Autism and their families, by expanding and enhancing opportunities to improve quality of life. On October 25 of 2014, WAFAC obtained from the Mayor of Charlotte, Daniel G. Clodfelter, a Proclamation of "Blue Angels Day".
Autism is used to describe someone who lives in a world of his/her own. In medical terms, autism is a brain-based developmental disorder that affects a person’s ability to communicate, be with other people, and engage in developmentally appropriate behaviours. Children do not “outgrow” autism but symptoms may lessen or change as the child develops and receives educational interventions.

WAFAC has developed several programs that will be explained during our interview, including: Social Skill Education; Life Skill Education; 
Recreational Programs; Connections Parent Support Groups; Special Interest Program expansions Family Gatherings; Autism Awareness presentations in the community. Mariame will talk about their After_School/Respite program as well the construction of the "Multi-sensory Room"

Join us to break the myths and learn the truth about autism!
