April is Autism Inclusion & Advocacy Month. Treatment for autism and our understanding of it has evolved dramatically. As more people are being diagnosed, let’s be kind and support inclusion so people with autism can live the lives they choose.

Use our resources to learn about what it means to be on the autism spectrum and share support for parents, teachers and loved ones throughout April and beyond.

Autism Know the Signs

The rise in cases of autism has sparked a pressing need for the public, especially parents and guardians, to understand the signs in children. If your child or someone you know displays delayed milestones, social challenges, communication differences, repetitive behaviors or any of the markers for autism, seek professional evaluation to set them up for success later in life.

Like many complex diagnoses, misconceptions surround autism. The spectrum includes a wide range of behaviors, abilities and needs. No two people with autism are the same, and it’s up to the individual and their support system to determine the best way to interact with society and find meaningful relationships.

When it comes to an autism diagnosis, you may have heard, “the earlier, the better.” In fact, autism can be detected in children as early as 18 months old. Early intervention is crucial because it allows children to more naturally learn social and language development skills.

Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) is a common method of autism treatment and support. A critical element of ABA for children is the role that parents and guardians play in treatment. When caretakers are active participants and advocate for their child’s unique needs in ABA treatment, there is a better chance for success.
