April is Autism Awareness Month!
Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a complex developmental disability; signs typically appear during early childhood and affect a person’s ability to communicate, and interact with others.
ASD is defined by a certain set of behaviors and is a “spectrum condition” that affects individuals differently and to varying degrees.
There is no known single cause of autism, but increased awareness and early diagnosis/intervention and access to appropriate services/supports lead to significantly improved outcomes.
April is Autism Awareness Month – we encourage you to spread awareness, acceptance, inclusion and appreciation this month.
We are a proud provider for North East Kansas with expertise targeting individuals with developmental, intellectual and related disabilities.
