The Topping Brothers autismspeaksscv.com are working to increase funding and research to cure autism – join them in the fight!
2010 was a tough year for the Topping family as then 3-year-old Liam Topping was diagnosed with autism. But it didn’t take long for the Topping Brothers (Liam, Miles, and Harry III aka Trey) to circle their wagons and get into action fighting this increasingly prevalent condition which impacts 1 of every 68 children making it an epidemic.
Autism is a condition that affects more children than you might think. Here are some stats to back that up:
- About 1 in 68 children has been identified with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) according to estimates from CDC’s Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring (ADDM) Network.
- ASD is reported to occur in all racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic groups.
- ASD is about 4.5 times more common among boys (1 in 42) than among girls (1 in 189).
- Studies in Asia, Europe, and North America have identified individuals with ASD with an average prevalence of between 1% and 2%
