Without the academic qualifications to pursue post-secondary education, nor the job skills to find <a _fcksavedurl="" href="">meaningful employment</a>, there is often little for them to do but simply... wait for a chance.</p> <p> Statistically speaking, their chances are slim. There are more than 340,000 students in Florida who have a developmental disability. Seventy-nine percent of this group will not qualify for further educational opportunities.&nbsp; Ninety percent will be unemployed.&nbsp; What is all the more foreboding is that a mere eight percent of companies in America report hiring people with disabilities, which makes future<a _fcksavedurl="" href="">job prospects</a> equally remote.</p> <p> <a _fcksavedurl="" href="">&gt; Read the article</a></p> Admin DMF 2013-05-19T19:43:52Z Dan Marino Foundation WalkAbout Autism Event draws 20,000 to Sun Life Stadium Admin DMF 2013-05-19T19:42:42Z 2013-05-19T19:41:53Z <p> <em>by Ben Volin</em></p> <p> Dolphins GM&nbsp;Jeff Ireland was impressed with the crowd that amassed at Sun Life Stadium on Saturday morning, but it had nothing to do with football.</p> <p> More than 20,000 people showed up to support the Dan Marino Foundation's WalkAbout Autism event, the largest crowd in the event's three-year history.&nbsp; Ireland and Marino both have children afflicted with autism, and their WalkAbout has now raised more than $1.4 million in three years for Marino's foundation, which benefits autism organizations within Dade and Broward Counties.</p> <p> "It's grown into something much larger than we ever expected," Ireland said Saturday morning.&nbsp; "We're trying to affect this community and bring awareness and raise money for the organizations that have really helped us."</p> <p> &gt; Read the article</p> Admin DMF 2013-05-19T19:41:53Z Dan Marino’s Son Following Dad’s Lead In Autism Charity Work Admin DMF’s-son-following-dad’s-lead-in-autism-charity-work 2013-05-19T19:36:49Z 2013-05-19T19:36:05Z <p> MIAMI (CBS4) – Michael Marino beams with pride and gratitude&nbsp; to a&nbsp;very famous dad, Dad Marino.</p> <p> “He is just a very kind person, a very good father and he cares a lot about his kids,” said Marino, 24.</p> <p> But these days, Michael Marino is stepping into the spotlight for the first time as the public face of his Dad’s foundation, a lifeline for children with autism.
