Autism Awareness

April is Autism Awareness Month

is a developmental disability that typically appears during the first three years of life. It is the result of a neurological disorder that affects the functioning of the brain, and occurs in about one out of every 68 births. Autism is four times more prevalent in boys than girls and knows no racial, ethnic or social boundaries.
