This year, Autism Acceptance Month reflects a shift from emphasizing autism awareness to recognizing the critical need to promote acceptance, inclusion and connection for autistic individuals. According to the CDC, 1 in 44 children are diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), and more than 7 million Americans have ASD.
