News Spotlight: Autism Awareness Month

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

Meanwhile, here are some recent PNN posts on autism:
