Autism Acceptance Month in Youth Services

April is Autism Acceptance Month! First observed in 1972 by the Autism Society, the goal of the month is to create a more inclusive society in which autistic* people are celebrated and supported. For more information on autism, we encourage you to visit the Autistic Self Advocacy Network’s website.

* Identity-first language (“autistic person”) is preferred over person-first language (“person with autism”) by the vast majority of the autistic community because autism is an inherent part of an individual’s identity, and we honor and affirm this language choice.
