Project 50/50
is here



  • About 1 percent of the world population has autism spectrum disorder. (CDC, 2014)
  • Prevalence in the United States is estimated at 1 in 68 births. (CDC, 2014)
  • More than 3.5 million Americans live with an autism spectrum disorder. (Buescher et al., 2014)
  • Prevalence of autism in U.S. children increased by 119.4 percent from 2000 (1 in 150) to 2010 (1 in 68). (CDC, 2014
  • Autism is the fastest-growing developmental disability. (CDC, 2008)
  • Prevalence has increased by 6-15 percent each year from 2002 to 2010. (Based on biennial numbers from the CDC)
  • Autism services cost U.S. citizens $236-262 billion annually. (Buescher et al., 2014)
  • A majority of costs in the U.S. are in adult services – $175-196 billion, compared to $61-66 billion for children. (Buescher et al., 2014)

The numbers are staggering and sometimes people with Autism Spectrum Disorder 

(ASD) do not get a voice. The do not get heard. They are looked at as different. They are looked at as less. We want to give them a voice, and we want to show the world that they are not different and they are not less, but equal. Unique! 



NOW ON TO THE GOOD STUFF!!! What is Project 50/50?


At BGP Publishing we believe everyone walks to the beat of their own drum, and that is amazing. Here, we embrace uniqueness with open arms. We want to spread the love and help make America, and the world in general, more aware of an issue that is becoming more and more common.


We decided to start Project 50/50 for that very reason. 


NO, NOT DIFFERENT, UNIQUE.


Being different isn’t always perceived in a positive light. We choose to say unique. However, society tends to see these people, children, men and women as lacking. They are not lacking. They are not less. They are not “different.” They ARE UNIQUE, and Project 50/50 is going to make sure the world knows that just because people with ASD are special in their own way they are not less, nor should they be treated as such. They should be treated as equals.


Imagine if you were treated less just because you were left-handed. Sure, you could learn how to do things right-handed, but it would always feel off. What if you had blue eyes and you were treated as less because of it? It’s not something you have control over. You were born this way. This is what Project 50/50 is all about. Spreading equality, understanding and acceptance in uniqueness.

Just because someone is classified with ASD does not mean they are not productive members of society. In fact, there are people that make millions of dollars a year who have been classified with some sort of ASD.


So just what is Project 50/50?


Well, BGP Publishing is opening up submissions from January-April. NOPE, you don’t have to write a book. What we are looking for are candidates from all 50 states to represent the different styles, shapes and sizes of ASD. It doesn’t matter how old or young they are, we want to see them all!


After the costs of printing and production, BGP Publishing will donate 100% of all proceeds to Autism Research foundations.
