Autism Awareness Puzzle RibbonApril is National Autism Awareness Month. In order to highlight the growing need for concern and awareness about autism, ECNV joins organizations across the nation to celebrate National Autism Awareness Month!

Autism has been growing in recent years, and it currently affects 1 in 110 children in the US. Autism is a developmental disability thought to be the result of a neurological condition affecting normal development of the brain and social interactions. People with autism usually have difficulty forming and maintaining meaningful relationships with others.

There are many different types of disorders that are considered part of the Autism Spectrum.

Please help spread the word by learning something new about Autism and starting a conversation with someone in your community.  To learn more Autism, you can look at the following websites.

    Autism spectrum disorders (ASD) often can be reliably detected by age 3. In some cases even earlier than that. Recent studies suggest that kids may eventually be accurately diagnosed by the age of 1 year or even younger. One thing for certain is that if your child shows any of the early warning signs of autism then they should be evaluated by a professional who specializes in autism disorders.
