Autism Speaks

The Chicago NW Suburban Alumnae Association of Alpha Xi Delta is excited to bring Autism Speaks to the Chicago NW Suburban community. The worlds largest autism advocacy organization, Autism Speaks is dedicated to increasing awareness of autism spectrum disorders, to funding research into the causes, prevention and treatments for autism, and to advocating for the needs of individuals with autism and their families.

Our Sisters look forward to increasing autism awareness and working with Autism Speaks. With one in 110 children diagnosed with autism and no known cure, Alpha Xi Delta is committed to improving the lives of children and families affected by autism. We hope our fundraising and awareness efforts can help put one more piece of the autism puzzle in place.
