April Is Autism Acceptance Month

April 1st, 2024

By: UCCS Media

April marks the onset of Autism Awareness Month, a time dedicated to shedding light on

the intricacies of autism and fostering greater understanding,

acceptance and support for individuals with autism.

Autism is a complex neurodevelopmental condition characterized by differences in social

communication and interaction. This includes restricted interests and repetitive behaviors.

While each individual with autism is unique, common traits include: difficulties in social communication,

sensory sensitivities, and a preference for routine and predictability. It's important to recognize that autism is a spectrum assessment, meaning that it manifests in a wide range of presentations, from mild to severe, and no two autistic individuals are exactly alike.

Non-profit agencies like Unique Care Community Services, play a crucial role in supporting individuals with autism. This is done by facilitating programs such as: Day-Habilitation, Community Habilitation, as well as Respite.

These programs aim to not only help people with autism become more independent in their everyday lives, but also to create a community of acceptance which acts as pillars of support for them.
