Autism Acceptance Month

April 1 - April 30

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) describes Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) as a
“developmental disability that can cause significant social, communication and behavior challenges.”
According to 2016 from the CDC’s Autism and Developmental Disabilities Monitoring (ADDM) Network, an estimated 1 in 54 children has been identified ASD.

The month of April is Autism Acceptance Month and includes observances to highlight the increasing number of individuals identified with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and the impacts on families and support services. It is also an opportunity to celebrate the unique perspectives of those living with Autism.
