April is Autism Awareness Month

AuSMAutismAwarenessMonthWhy Autism?

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. 

Why AuSM?

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
