In 2002 myself and my kids met up with Victoria Boland and her mom Viga Boland Boland. I so wanted for Victoria to write a song for our foundation as i had listened to a few of her songs and her voice was just amazing. I knew she was the one I wanted to be a part of the foundations song that I so wanted to have one done up . After a few short meetings with Victoria and her mom Viga so that they could hear what I had to say about autism and watch Nathan and Tasha interact. The two of them came up with this beautiful song that they co wrote together called "Don`t Give Up On Me" Autism..for our Canadian National Autism Foundation. I can remember the first time that Victoria Boland sang this song for me only at one of our events privately I balled my eyes out as IT WAS MY LIFE that she was singing. Words will never express the way the song made me feel and that they came up with this beautiful song and words.How could someone reach into your head, heart and soul and come up with such beautiful words that were my life...you have to live it to know BUT NO they did not live it..BUT MAN did they ever come up with the words that are my life and so many other peoples lives that have a loved one on the autism spectrum.... WELL the two of them did an amazing,amazing job with coming up with the perfect words. This family has a special place in my families heart and always will.This song was release to the public April 30th, 2006. Thank you as well to all who were involved in this song geting put together.Thank you to some very talented musicians that helped on this autism song by playing their instruments for this song Christabel Pinto and Grenville Pinto . Please read the words that are attached to the cd picture as well. You can listen to the song on our website here http://www.cnaf.net/DontGiveUpOnMe.html

"Run's House" meets "Black-ish" - that's how Holly Robinson Peete says she pitched her family reality show now in its second season on Oprah's OWN Network. And Saturday's offering of "For Peete's Sake," aims to live up to the actress-turned-activist's billing.

Peete hosts a town hall discussion, bringing together law enforcement and the special-needs community for a heartfelt and provocative discussion inspired mostly by Charles Kinsey - a black mental health therapist shot by North Miami police officers last year while trying to help his autistic patient. As the mother of a black son with autism, Peete says the case hit way too close to home.

The study was conducted over a 15-year period ending in 2014, thumbing through over 39 million death records, screening the codes on each record.
It found those with an autism diagnosis were three times more likely to die from injuries than the rest of the general population.
That number among children rises dramatically. Autistic children are 40 times more likely to die from injuries than the general child population.
Three causes make up 80% of those injuries, suffocation, asphyxiation and drowning.
Because of this, the average age for those with autism is just 36, compared to 72 for the general population.
