April is a month that challenges readers in the United States. Not only is it National Poetry Month and National Sexual Assault Awareness Month, it's also National Autism Awareness Month.
The Autism Society says,
In order to highlight the growing need for concern and awareness about autism, the Autism Society has been celebrating National Autism Awareness Month since the 1970s. The United States recognizes April as a special opportunity for everyone to educate the public about autism and issues within the autism community.
This is the perfect time to expand our understanding of autism and Asperger's syndrome. We recommend reading QUIRKY, YES---HOPELESS, NO, THE MYTH OF AUTISM, and THE AGE OF AUTISM.
