Did you know that April is Autism Acceptance Month? We are sure you have probably also heard it referred to as Autism Awareness Month but in 2021, the designation changed to Autism Acceptance Month.

It's a simple – but important – revision.

"Awareness is knowing that somebody has autism, Acceptance is when you include a person with autism in your activities. Help them to develop in that community and get that sense of connection to other people." - Christopher Banks, president and CEO of The Autism Society of America.

Here’s a great informative graphic to help you understand the difference between autism awareness and autism acceptance.
