Autism Awareness Month

Posted by mcpl on

What is National Autism Awareness Month?

One in every 68 children in America are diagnosed with some form of autism. Almost twenty-five years ago the Autism Society launched a nationwide effort to promote autism awareness and inclusion. National Autism Awareness Month has since grown to become an inspirational movement.

If you’d like to learn more, explore some of these resources:

Autism Speaks , Autism Society, and Autism Society of North Carolina

These organizations provide an overview of the symptoms of autism; state, national and global statistics; resources on current therapies; and how to find local support.

NC Cardinal- Autism

Explore over 775 books, audio-books, and downloadable resources available though our NC Cardinal catalog.  Titles include cookbooks and therapies available for parents and caregivers, a variety of perspectives on the condition of autism, biographies, as well as novels that include characters with autism.

McDowell County School System

Our local school system provides a wide variety of resources for children with autism.  Their website provides a comprehensive list of local groups that parents and caregivers can contact.
