It’s that time of year again… #GivingTuesday – the international day to give back and kickstart the holiday season. Many people unite to give back to the causes that mean a lot to them. For us, that means doing everything we can do to help families in need.
October is National Bullying Awareness month. This is the time we all take a moment to think about what causes bullying and how to prevent it. Well, here at PS Academy, we believe that the more unity we can have among students, the less likely it is that bullying will occur.

They've found that 7% of those with autism are missing a piece of their chromosome 16. This chromosome is known as 16p11.2 deletion syndrome, which often leads to neurodevelopmental disability and language skills impairment.
The latest research released by the CDC shows that autism rates have been climbing over the last few years. The report is published every two years by the Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring Network, a CDC-funded tracking system that assesses more than 300,000 8-year-old children for the disorder. Here’s what they found…

There are several different disorders on the autism spectrum. These are called ASD’s – autism spectrum disorders. There is much confusion in terminology these days. Many people have a hard time understanding what the symptom differences are between the disorders. Here is a starter guide to understanding the spectrum – which disorders are classified as being on the spectrum, as well as some conditions that have similar symptoms as ASD’s, but do not fall on the spectrum.
