“Through our journey with our son, we found a gap in programs for children on the autism spectrum, and we wanted to change that.”- Sherwood Collins, Beignet Fest Founder
The main diagnosis for children with a development delay is autism. Today, it is estimated that 1 in 68 children (and 1 in 42 boys) is diagnosed with autism, making it more common than childhood cancer, juvenile diabetes and pediatric AIDS combined. (Centers for Disease Control)
Autism is a complex brain disorder that inhibits a person’s ability to communicate and develop social relationships, and is often accompanied by behavioral challenges.
