autism awareness month
Autism is one of the fastest-growing developmental disorders in the U.S., affecting 1 in 68 children and 1 in 42 boys. Chances are very high that you know someone, are someone, or are related to someone that has autism in their life.
Did you know that Alabama has a higher rate of autism than most states? It takes a Village to raise autism awareness and we’ve got some great details about Huntsville and Madison County can be a more inclusive community.
April is Autism Awareness Month in Huntsville and it is a great time for us to educate ourselves about Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Autism is a developmental disorder that affects social interaction and communication. The behaviors that define Autism manifest themselves to varying degrees and affect individuals differently, which is why it is considered a “spectrum disorder”.
I didn’t plan on how it must hurt you to watch your little brother struggle with things that just came completely naturally to you. I didn’t plan on having to answer your question when you were five, “When is Matthew going to talk to me?”
