April is Autism Awareness Month, and today is World Autism Day. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), autism spectrum disorder (ASD) affects about 1 in 59 children in the United States. ASD is a developmental disability that can cause significant social, communication, and behavioral challenges. There is no one-size-fits-all solution for autism, but early intervention can make a big difference.
If you know someone with ASD, be patient, understanding, and supportive. And remember: autistic people are just like everyone else—they just see and experience the world differently. Let’s celebrate neurodiversity this month! Thank you for reading and please share this blog post to help raise awareness about ASD during Autism Awareness Month.
