April is autism awareness month

ALPENA, Mich. –

Sometimes the work being done by non–profit organizations may go unnoticed.

We may have even forgotten that April is National Autism Awareness month.

Here’s more on the additional work the Autism Society is doing.

When you think of autism, your first thought is probably A–S–D (Autism Spectrum Disorder) which is a lifelong developmental disability that impacts the social and communication skills of children.

While this is the primary focus of the Autism Society of America, they were the first national autism organization to dedicate a web page on their site related to COVID–19 providing information and resources for mental health, emergency funding, respite care and more.

The autism community is dedicated to their cause and dedicated to helping us get through COVID–19 but just like any challenging time, they are in need of support from the community.
