There are millions of people living with autism, and every day these individuals and their families face unique and daunting challenges that many of us will never fully appreciate. According to estimates from CDC’s Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring Network, 1 of every 68 children is identified as having autism spectrum disorder. April has been designated as National Autism Awareness Month in a nationwide effort to promote autism awareness, inclusion and self-determination for all, and assure that each person with ASD is provided the opportunity to achieve the highest possible quality of life. What can you do to help during Autism Awareness Month? Connect with a family that is affected by autism, watch a movie or read a book about autism, and donate to CSAAC to help support individuals with autism!
