April is Autism Awareness Month

 

April is Autism Awareness Month

Autism is a life-long, neurological developmental disability that ranges from mild to severe along a wide spectrum of possibilities.

Usually diagnosed before the age of three, people with autism often have difficulty with language, with relating to others socially, and may engage in repetitive or restricted patterns of behavior.  Autism is diagnosed in equal numbers across all racial, ethnic and socioeconomic groups, but it occurs four times more frequently in boys than girls.  There is no simple cause for autism.

As stated by President Barack Obama in his Presidential Proclamation for World Autism Awareness Day 2011, Autism Awareness month promotes the recognition of advances in research and the contributions of individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder.  With each breakthrough in research and each innovative treatment, we open endless possibilities for those touched by autism.
