The NFL Hall of Famer and former Miami Dolphins Quarterback, Dan Marino and his wife Clair, are motivated by the experiences of raising their son, Michael, who was diagnosed with Autism, and they felt they could help the autistic community.  They established the non-profit foundation, Dan Marino Foundation, to open doors for children with disabilities.

The Autism movement people hope to cause others to think of autism as a difference instead of a disease. Proponents of this movement wish to seek “acceptance, not cures.” Living with an individual diagnosed within the vast spectrum of Autism can be extremely stressful.  There is an incredible amount of information preparing families with the basic tools they need for the best possible results for their loved ones.  Often assistance from a support team of professionals is needed. 

“Most young adults with disabilities are not given the chance to prove their value in the workplace. Upon earning their high school degree or certificate, seven out of ten young adults with disabilities will remain at home into their 30s and beyond, unable to find employment and maintain a high quality of life.”  It is at this juncture that the Dan Marino Foundation and the State of Florida intercede and offer an inspiring job development program for persons with disabilities. This upcoming Spring Break, March 21- 25, 2016 the Dan Marino Foundation is offering a one week program for teens with developmental disabilities strengthen their employable skills.  The program teaches resume writing, job search skills, career goal development, interactive training and workplace etiquette and socialization.  For information on the weeklong program, please visit www.danmarinofoundation.org.

Each person with Autism is exceptional. The Dan Marino Foundation and Miami Children’s Hospital, 400 North Andrews Avenue, Fort Lauderdale, offer an all-inclusive facility offering “comprehensive medical services, therapies, sensory gym, adaptive aquatics center, orthotics division, and urgent care center.”  Support the autistic and other development disabilities community with your support by empowering these unique individuals.
