Proudly serving individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities since 1953.

Celebrate Differences Autism 2021

Join us in recognizing April as Autism Awareness Month. In 1970, the Autism Society launched an ongoing nationwide effort to promote autism awareness and assure that all individuals affected by autism are able to achieve the highest quality of life possible. The Autism Society of America, the nation’s oldest leading grassroots autism organization, is again proud to celebrate April as Autism Acceptance Month with its “Celebrate Differences” campaign.  This campaign supports efforts to spread awareness, promote acceptance, and ignite change all around the world . It is also designed to build a better awareness of the signs, symptoms, and realities of autism and provide information and resources for individuals and communities.  The prevalence of autism in the United States has risen from 1 in 125 children in 2010 to 1 in 54 in 2020. Recognizing this continued increase, Autism Awareness Month strives to build allies and partnerships that will assist in making our communities the most inclusive places possible for all people to live, grow and maximise one's own unique potential.
