The latest statistics from the Center for Disease Control indicate that 1 of every 6 children is affected by a neurodiverse condition, such as autism, ADHD, dyslexia other general learning disorder. Proceeds from this fundraiser will support the Unicorn Children’s Foundation’s efforts to transform communities to engage, inspire, empower, and include individuals with neurodiversity in everyday routines, activities, and places. The support of the public has made possible several initiatives within the South Florida region:
• Completion of year 1 for students at the Unicorn Village Academy, a community-based life-skills, academic and career high school for youth 13-22 with neurodiversity and hidden abilities.
• Partnerships with local universities to provide free developmental screenings and referrals aboard our Mobile Developmental Clinics in traditionally underserved areas of the community.
• Launch of the 211 Special Needs Hotline in Palm Beach/Treasure Coast to connect families with available resources and service providers in the community.
