TV Spots Raise Autism Awareness

The Advertising Council and Autism Speaks have teamed up to produce a series of public service announcements to raise awareness in parents of the signs of autism.

Autism is the fastest growing developmental disorder, according to the Center for Disease Control. One in 110 children and 1 in 70 boys have the diagnosis. This is a 600% increase in the last 20 years.

While there is no cure for Autism, early intervention can make a big difference in a young child’s life.

This ongoing series of spots includes television, radio, print, and the web banner adsĀ  in English and Spanish. More than 33,000 media outlets across the nation received the ads this week.
