April is Autism Acceptance Month, a time to celebrate the differences and contributions of autistic people, and promote inclusion and self-determination.
Autism is a spectrum of developmental conditions that affect how people communicate, interact, and perceive the world.
Autism affects about 1 in 54 children in the US, and millions more around the world, with diverse strengths and challenges.
April 2 is World Autism Awareness Day, a UN-sanctioned event that aims to raise global awareness and support for autism research and advocacy.
The Autism Society of America launched the first national campaign in 1972, and since then, many organizations and communities have joined the movement.
