Crowds turned out Friday, April 1, for the International Festival and World Cup Tournament, created to recognize the Emory community's diversity through food, music and friendly soccer competition. Wet weather forced the event to move indoors to the Woodruff PE Center, but didn't put a damper on the festivities. See more photos.

Quote

 

"While this is a hint there may be a slowing of growth and identification of people with autism, it certainly doesn't yet confirm that we are seeing this leveling out. What it confirms is that autism is a more common condition than we had been addressing for many years and we need to use these numbers to motivate us to help address the needs in the community."
Catherine Rice, CNN, March 31, 2016
