April is Autism Acceptance Month

Why Autism?

With a national prevalence rate of 1 in 54 and Minnesota’s prevalence rate of 1 in 44, autism is the fastest growing disability. Everyone knows someone who is touched by autism.

Why AuSM?

Since 1971, the Autism Society of Minnesota (AuSM) has been committed to enhancing the lives of individuals and families affected by Autism Spectrum Disorder. AuSM serves Minnesotans, throughout their lives, with a fundamental commitment to advocacy, education, support, collaboration, and community building. 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. AuSM is a 501(c)(3) organization, and donations are tax-deductible.

What can you do?

April is National Autism Acceptance Month, a special opportunity to show your support for the autism community. AuSM invites you to partner with us in April to increase autism acceptance.

2021 Autism Acceptance Month information will be available in the new year.

Thank you, AuSM Autism Awareness Month 2020 Partners!
