Autism awareness month begins in April
Irvine, Calif. (March 27, 2014) -– “The newest survey reports on autism prevalence are staggering. In the 1970’s autism affected 1 in every 10,000.” said Lisa Ackerman, TACA Executive Director. “We can no longer assume we are more aware or better at diagnosing. There is just more autism. It is time we offer families help not excuses.”
In support of April being Autism Awareness Month, TACA has created an autism action month campaign: #AutismActionApril to provide practical tools for companies and individuals who want to help. The campaign aims to educate, empower and inspire by helping with simple solutions to support families living with this disorder. Help is needed now more than ever before.

What is Autism
Autism is a devastating neurological and biological disorder that typically begins to affect children between the ages of 18 months to five years of age. Some people with autism are severely affected, cannot speak, require constant one-on-one care, and are never able to live independently. While others who have less severe symptoms, can communicate, and eventually acquire the necessary skills to live on their own.
