Embracing Autism Awareness this April and Everyday
By Samantha Elander
You may have seen the color blue a bit more throughout your community recently. April is Autism Awareness Month and blue represents a nationwide effort to educate everyone about Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). When we better understand ASD, we can accept and appreciate people affected by it. The more we know, the better we can support them and celebrate their unique talents and gifts.
About 1% of the world’s population has ASD and 1 in 68 children in the U.S. are affected. Though it has become more common to know someone on the spectrum, it’s a complex condition to fully understand.

The Autism Society encourages us to share our experiences and stories using #standupforautism. While April focuses just on ASD, it’s a reminder of the varying needs in our community and how we can all do a better job of supporting one another.
