JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (PRWEB) April 26, 2013

The 9th Annual Jacksonville School for Autism (JSA) Charity Golf Classic was held this week to raise awareness of the developmental disorder and provide much needed funds for the school. Incepture, a Jacksonville-headquartered staffing company, was a title sponsor for the event.

The event, at Deerwood Country Club, continued despite recent inclement weather and raised more than $77,000 for the Jacksonville School for Autism.

“April is Autism Awareness month and this event is an important way to remind the public of this serious issue that strikes at a young age,” said Libby Kelly marketing manager at Incepture and vice chairman of the board for the Jacksonville School for Autism. “The causes of Autism are not yet known, but the Jacksonville School for Autism helps young people with the disorder to learn in an environment tailored for their unique needs.”

There were 136 golfers and volunteers participating in the golf tournament, including some of Incepture´s employees. Autism is an epidemic with one in 88 children and one in 58 boys diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).

Jacksonville School for Autism is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit school dedicated to helping children with autism achieve a solid foundation for learning and communication. Children with autism deserve the opportunity to learn in a safe and caring environment. JSA offers a comprehensive, individualized, one-to-one direct instruction utilizing the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA).
