Quotes

"Lights On Afterschool events give children and youth a chance to showcase the skills they learn and talents they develop at their afterschool programs, and to send the message that millions more students need quality afterschool programs" said Afterschool Alliance Executive Director Jodi Grant
...and to send the message that millions more students need quality afterschool programs," said Afterschool Alliance Executive Director Jodi Grant . "Our many partners, including Bright House Networks, the Empire State Building, Mozilla, Healthy Kids Out of School, the Maker Education Initiative, Nickelodeon, the Association of Science-Technology Centers, the Alliance for Excellent Education, and dozens of others are helping us spotlight the fun, educational, hands-on learning activities that quality afterschool programs offer children each afternoon. We need much more support from government at all levels, business, philanthropy and other sectors if we are to make afterschool programs available to all students."
Speaking of this latest study, Dr. Talbott says: "Our analysis is an addition to the small but growing body of research that considers air toxics as one of the risk factors for ASD."
...P H , principal investigator of the analysis and professor of epidemiology at Pitt Public Health. "Despite its serious social impact, the causes of autism are poorly understood. Very few studies of autism have included environmental exposures while taking into account other personal and behavioral risk factors. Our analysis is an addition to the small but growing body of research that considers air toxics as one of the risk factors for ASD."
