April is World Autism Month and National Autism Awareness Month. Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), a neurological and developmental disorder, becomes observable in early childhood and impacts the person throughout their life. With a range of symptoms, how can parents, caregivers, family members, teachers, and community members learn about ASD? Please join us for this session to discuss reliable health-related resources that can assist in understanding and advocating for individuals with ASD.
