At Booker Autism Foundation of Learning, Inc. (BAFOL), our goal is to have a campus that provides FREE services for all undeserved families struggling in the "AUTTIE WORLD." We are dedicated to raising public awareness about Autism and its effects on individuals, families, and society; and to inspire hope to all who deal with the hardships of this diagnosis. We are a 100% volunteer ran and operated organization that is totally committed to raising the funds necessary to support these goals.
BAFOL aims to bring the global community together as one strong voice to urge the government and private sector to listen to our concerns and take action to address this urgent global concern. It is our firm belief that, working together, we will find the answers that so many parents ask me about (i.e. food, water, air, genetics, etc.)...AUTISM!
As a parent, I know firsthand that our kids are a blessing from GOD. I also know that knowledge is a powerful gift from GOD. And, I use this GOD given gift, to transform lives. I am a certified Holistic/Alternative Health Coach (in college obtaining ND license). And, according to NAMI, parents should investigate all Eastern/Western practices for total Body, Mind, and Soul...AUTISM!
Today, it is estimated that 1 in 59 children and 1 in 54 boys is diagnosed with Autism, making it more common than childhood cancer, juvenile diabetes and pediatric AIDS combined.
Autism receives less than 5% of the research funding of many less prevalent childhood diseases and costs the nation $126 billion per year. Studies suggest boys are more likely than girls to develop autism and receive the diagnosis three to four times more frequently.
