Autism Awareness and Acceptance Month

Autism Awareness and Acceptance Month

April is Autism Awareness and Acceptance Month, Autism spectrum disorder (Autism) is a developmental disability caused by differences in the brain. Scientists believe there are multiple causes of Autism that act together to change the most common ways people develop. We still have much to learn about these causes and how they impact people with Autism.

People with Autism may behave, communicate, interact, and learn in ways that are different from most other people. There is often nothing about how they look that sets them apart from other people. The abilities of people with Autism can vary significantly. For example, some people with Autism may have advanced conversation skills whereas others may be nonverbal. Some people with Autism need a lot of help in their daily lives; others can work and live with little to no support.

In Utah, about 1 in 40 people have Autism. An individual with Autism in Utah generally has 4.6 other diagnoses.
