One in 68 children born in the United States has autism spectrum disorder (ASD), according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. With prevalence on the rise, it’s important to learn more about the condition.

April, which is National Autism Awareness Month, is an ideal time to learn more about the potential of people with autism, as well as support organizations that research the risk factors and provide services to patients.

Be a better friend, neighbor or colleague to someone you know by becoming savvy about ASD. To learn more about autism or how to host your own event, visit www.autism-society.org.
