This April, Cahill Strategies recognizes the importance of “Celebrating Differences” to build a better awareness of the signs, symptoms, and realities of autism. We’re proud to join such incredible organizations Autism Society, Nassau Suffolk Autism Society of America, (NSASA), and Luv Michael as well as all who champion our autism friends and families.
The Autism Society’s Autism Acceptance Month recognizes that the prevalence of autism in the United States has risen from 1 in 125 children in 2010 to 1 in 54 in 2020 – recognizing this continued increase, the goal for AAM is to further increase awareness about autism signs, symptoms and opportunities through: information and referrals, events, printable and digital resources, and community partnerships with businesses and organizations dedicated to building inclusive experiences. – Autism Society

Since Cahill Strategies’ founding, we’ve worked on numerous non-profit campaigns with the autism community and we couldn’t be more proud to work alongside the people who have such an incredible impact on this community. From the amazing stories told by NSASA families, to the incredible success of the autism-to-work initiative of Luv Michael – we’re proud to work with these great organizations.
