April is Autism Awareness Month!

Today, let’s celebrate the amazing individuals with autism and the different abilities they bring to the world. 🧩

What is Autism?

  • Autism is a complex developmental disability that affects how a person communicates, interacts and behaves with others. 

Here are some facts about Autism:

  • Autism is a spectrum, meaning that it affects people differently and at different levels.

  • People with autism can have a wide range of interests, skills, and talents.

  • Autism is not a mental illness or a learning difficulty.

  • There is no “cure” for autism, but there are a variety of interventions and therapies that can help people with autism to manage their condition and lead fulfilling lives.

  • People with autism can live meaningful, independent lives.

  • Early intervention is key to helping individuals with autism reach their full potential.

Let's work together to create more inclusive and accepting communities for people with autism.
