Autism Awareness Month brings necessary awareness to the needs of those we serve with mild autism spectrum disorder.
In order to highlight the growing need for concern and awareness about autism, the Autism Society has been celebrating National Autism Awareness Month since the 1970s. The United States recognizes April as a special opportunity to educate the public about autism and issues within the autism community.
Join the Autism Society in getting involved with the autism community this April.
Put on the Puzzle! The Autism Awareness Puzzle Ribbon is the most recognized symbol of the autism community in the world. Autism prevalence is now one in every 88 children in America. Show your support for people with autism by wearing the Autism Awareness Puzzle Ribbon as a pin on your shirt, a magnet on your car, a badge on your blog, or even your Facebook profile picture and educate folks on the potential of people with autism!
