April is Autism Awareness Month

Celebrating Differences

The Autism Society of Florida works all year around to bring attention to issues faced by people with autism and their families. National Autism Awareness Month every April represents an excellent opportunity for everyone in the United States of America to share in the responsibility of promoting autism awareness, autism acceptance and action to draw attention to the tens of thousands who will receive an autism diagnosis each year.

 

Nearly a quarter century ago, the Autism Society launched a nationwide effort to promote autism awareness, inclusion and self-determination for all, and assurance that each person with ASD is provided the opportunity to achieve the highest possible quality of life. ASF strives to ensure acceptance and inclusion in schools and communities that results in a true appreciation of the unique aspects of all people. We envision a society where people with ASD are truly valued for their unique gifts.

 

April is Autism Awareness Month

and is recognized in the following ways

Presidential/Congressional declarations
