    Autism Awareness

    Charities working to promote awareness, inclusion, and support for those with autism and their families.

    Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) refers to a range of conditions often characterized by challenges with social, behavioral, and communication skills. According to the Centers for Disease Control, it is estimated that ASD affects as many as 1 in 36 children in the United States.


    Autism Awareness Month is intended to raise awareness of ASD, and promote acceptance and inclusion of people living with it. Although many misconceptions exist about ASD, all of our lives are better because of the different strengths every person brings to the world. 


    These highly rated charities work hard throughout the year to promote autism awareness, inclusion, and self-determination for those with ASD.
