The purpose of the Essay Contest is to expand this independent film’s outreach in order to touch the hearts of those who care about the 1 in 68 Americans born each year who are diagnosed with Autism. Each essay submission is extremely important to Autism Media in that each writer joins the mission of the film to awaken society to serious need to provide solutions for ASD individuals when they become adults and their parents are no longer around to care for them. That is why each writer will be asked to participate and perhaps present his or her essay during the screening events of “Believing in miracles in spite of Autism” when the film is screened in their area as well as help promote the film by posting and sharing flyers and posts on their preferred social media platform(s).

Filmmaker’s Appreciation:

Thank you to those of you who are reading this message. I wish you the very best in all that you do. I became an Autism Advocate to increase awareness and make the world a better place for my two sons diagnosed with Autism and those like them. The world will change for them when I’m gone, but it’s people like you who will stand up for the Special Needs Population and be their voice. God bless you mightily.
