World Autism Awareness Day

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is a developmental condition that can affect social, communication, and behavioral challenges. Autism affects the nervous system and affects how someone interacts, communicates or behaves. Early detection and educational therapies may reduce symptoms and support development. People with ASD might have trouble communicating and repeat certain behaviors. Most signs of Autism begin at an early age and may last a lifetime. Join us on Friday, April 2nd for World Autism Awareness Day.
