News Spotlight: Autism Awareness Month

News Spotlight: Autism Awareness Month 29575
April is Autism Awareness Month, and especially in light of this week's revelation that 1 in 88 American children has an autism spectrum disorder (ASD), I have decided to focus on the topic of autism, Asperger's, and related issues on this blog during the month of April.  I hope to feature at least one post per day covering a new piece of research, a trend, or innovative ways schools, families, and communities are working to set children with autism up for success.

Please feel free to share any news stories that you encounter by emailing ParentsNewsNow@gmail.com.

Meanwhile, here are some recent PNN posts on autism:
