The fight against Autism!
Paintballers we are gearing up to fight for a cause!! This will be the 2nd Annual Autistic Fundraiser held at Paintball World Orlando, Florida!
Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and autism are both general terms for a group of complex disorders of brain development. These disorders are characterized, in varying degrees, by difficulties in social interaction, verbal and nonverbal communication and repetitive behaviors. They include autistic disorder, Rett syndrome, childhood dis-integrative disorder, pervasive developmental disorder-not otherwise specified (PDD-NOS) and Asperger syndrome. ASD can be associated with intellectual disability, difficulties in motor coordination and attention and physical health issues such as sleep and gastrointestinal disturbances. Some persons with ASD excel in visual skills, music, math and art.
This event will be hosted by a Paintballer in our local community that holds this cause dear to heart.. Alex Medina “SteamRoller” Captain of the Narcoosee Swamp Soldiers has a son that is struggling with Autism. Alex is certainly a strong and positive advocate in finding a cure and ways to help Autistic children have a better quality of life. 1 out of 88 children born have Autism. This is no longer just a disorder,, this has become an epidemic and they desperately need our help!
