April Is Autism Awareness Month
Stand Up For Autism
In April 1970, the Autism Society celebrated its first national Autism Awareness Month with the simple goal of making people aware of Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs).
Nearly 50 years later, April is still our designated month to focus on better informing people about autism. But it’s become so much more than that. Autism Awareness Month also represents a movement toward generating widespread acceptance and appreciation of children and adults on the autism spectrum.
So, in celebration of the 2018 Autism Awareness Month, help us promote awareness, inclusion and understanding in area schools, libraries, churches, restaurants, offices and other places across our community. Everywhere those on the autism spectrum can be truly valued for their unique personalities and talents!
Discover ways you can participate, advocate and donate throughout the month of April now!
