The Delta Psi Chapter of Alpha Xi Delta is excited to bring Autism Speaks to the Texas State campus community. The world's largest autism advocacy organization, Autism Speaks is dedicated to increasing awareness of autism spectrum disorders, to funding research into the causes, prevention and treatments for autism, and to advocating for the needs of individuals with autism and their families. Our Sisters look forward to increasing autism awareness on our campus and working with Autism Speaks. With one in 150 children diagnosed with autism and no known cure, Alpha Xi Delta is committed to improving the lives of children and families affected by autism. We hope our fundraising and awareness efforts can help put one more piece of the autism puzzle in place. Every semester we hold philanthropy events supporting Autism Speaks like a pancake breakfast called Xi Hop or a spaghetti dinner called Xiti with the Xi's! Every fall we not only hold our own philanthropy event, but our sisters also help with the local Autism Walk in San Antonio, Texas!
