April is Autism Acceptance Month!

This month, we are excited to celebrate and promote acceptance for the condition that occurs in one in every 36 children (U.S. 2023). Autism Acceptance Month encourages individuals to focus on acceptance, celebrate differences, and be more inclusive. This month also serves as a reminder to be empathetic, warm, and welcoming to individuals with autism and their families.
