April is Autism Acceptance Month, a time dedicated to celebrating the diverse experiences and talents of individuals on the autism spectrum. It's a moment to promote understanding, acceptance, and inclusion in our communities. Let's embrace neurodiversity and create a world where everyone is valued for who they are.

To learn more about Autism Spectrum Disorder and ways you can promote acceptance, visit the Autism Society website.
