The Centers for Disease Control reports that Autism Spectrum Disorder affects one in 88 children and the disorder is more common in boys.

"I came across this website called 'Light it up Blue.' I called the organization and asked them if it's okay if I made an event out here, which they happily said yes to", said Mandes. "It's just important to create awareness in the community".

It is estimated that there are more than 10 million people suffering from autism in China.

For more than a decade now, Ummeed's multi-disciplinary team of developmental paediatricians, autism interventionists, occupational therapists and mental health professionals have worked with thousands of families of children with autism.
