April is Autism Awareness Month
With a national prevalence rate of 1 in 59 and Minnesota's prevalence rate of 1 in 42, autism is the fastest growing disability. Everyone knows someone who is touched by autism.
Since 1971, the Autism Society of Minnesota has been committed to education, advocacy and support designed to enhance the lives of those affected by autism from birth through retirement. Every dollar raised for AuSM directly benefits the Minnesota autism community through programs and services tailored to the needs of families, individuals, educators, professionals and beyond. www.ausm.org

April is National Autism Awareness Month, a special opportunity to show your support for the autism community. AuSM invites you to partner with us in April 2019 to raise awareness about autism.
