"I am deeply honored to be selected as Master of Ceremonies at 'Shop. Sell. Strut!'," says Shefik. "According to statistics, more children will be diagnosed with autism this year than AIDS, diabetes, and cancer combined. Since April is National Autism Awareness Month, I am committed to lending my voice, to echo the mission of Autism New Jersey."

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a complex developmental disability. Signs typically appear during early childhood and affect a person's ability to communicate and interact with others. ASD is defined by a certain set of behaviors and is a "spectrum condition" that affects individuals differently and to varying degrees. There is no known single cause of autism, but increased awareness and early diagnosis/intervention and access to appropriate services/supports lead to significantly improved outcomes.
