Show your support for inclusion and for autism spectrum disorders.
What is Autism Awareness Month?
Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a complex developmental disorder that affects a person's ability to communicate and interact with others. More than 3.5 million Americans currently live with ASD, and 1 in 68 children are born with a variation of it, so it's likely you know, whether or not you're aware of it, someone on the autism spectrum. .....
But what can you do to participate and how can you help support the cause?
Actions That Show Support
Participate in a walk. There are hundreds of Autism walks around the country throughout the year. If you can participate in one during the month of April, great! If not, walking any time during the year for registered events is a great way to spread support and awareness.
Spend time with someone with autism. The best way to begin to understand autism is to interact with someone who is affected by it. Giving someone you know with autism support and consideration is a great way to celebrate the month and spread awareness and advocacy.
