What Is Autism?

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.

Studies also show that autism is three to four times more common among boys than girls. An estimated 1 out of 54 boys and 1 in 252 girls are diagnosed with autism in the United States.

What Causes Autism?

The clearest evidence of these autism risk factors involves events before and during birth. They include advanced parental age at time of conception (both mom and dad), maternal illness during pregnancy and certain difficulties during birth, particularly those involving periods of oxygen deprivation to the baby’s brain. It is important to keep in mind that these factors, by themselves, do not cause autism. Rather, in combination with genetic risk factors, they appear to modestly increase risk.

A small but growing body of research suggests that autism risk is less among children whose mothers took prenatal vitamins (containing folic acid) in the months before and after conception.



Mother’s Day | Courtney Social Media Consultant in Los Angeles

Mother’s Day is today…

And all of the Mother’s Day advertising / coupon deals are in full effect. A lot of companies are using social networking to market their Mother’s Day deals. A lot were really great and on point. Sprinkles Cupcakes is having a wonderful deal on “Mom” cupcakes…

I’m not a mom…but I want a gatdamn cupcake. I can scrape off the letters after I get my discount.

Anyways, this one made me “a tee hee” a little bit…

And it had me coming up with catchy slogans, like:

1. Come get your mom lit up at the Paintball Park!
2. Show your mom how much you care by pummeling her with some hard ass paintballs!
3. Hate your mom’s new wig? (can be substituted for “breast implants” – results may vary)

*Dear Paintball Parks – Please request permission before using my slogans. They’re copy written. I WILL find you. (wink) *

Happy Mothers Day to my mom and all the mommies out there. <3
