Approximately 50% of all savants have autism, while only about five to ten percent of individuals with autism possess extraordinary savant skills.
ABS Excavating Ltd. is raising Autism Awareness in our community and raising funds for Autism Services. They are encouraging companies and individuals to donate to Autism Services to help support the many local families living with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
From ABS Excavating Ltd.:
“ABS Excavating Ltd. has put a very special wrap on one of our skid steers. This wrap is for Autism. We have been a growing business in the Saskatoon and surrounding area for 8 years now. We decided it is time to give back, and what better way than to support something that hits close to home for our owner, Austin Wur. Austin’s older brother Kevin is autistic. Kevin’s favourite thing to do is to go for rides in pretty much anything! He loves the motor home, gravel trucks, side by side and anything else with wheels. At the end of each year ABS Excavating Ltd. will donate to Autism Services for every hour this piece of equipment has worked. The goal of this is to raise awareness for Autism Services and amazing people like Kevin.”
