About Autism
Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) or autism is a neurobiological disorder that affects social communication, interaction, and behavior. Individuals with autism can have difficulty: building relationships, using language, regulating their emotions, and understanding others’ points of view.

Why is Autism Awareness important?
In April, National Autism Awareness Month, we have the platform to promote powerful messages that encourage people to accept and embrace individuals with autism as an important part of our communities. With your actions, you can make a difference.
 
The “DOs” of autism awareness:
  • DO share a smile
  • DO be a friend
  • DO be respectful
  • DO show compassion
  • DO ask questions 
  • DO accept individuals with autism and their families as an important part of our communities.
