AUTISM AWARENESS MONTH

This week Fugleberg Koch celebrated World Autism Awareness & Acceptance Month. We pledged to go blue and to increase the global understanding and acceptance of people with autism, this included wearing and sharing blue with our platform.

Autism, or autism spectrum disorder (ASD), refers to a broad range of conditions characterized by challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech and nonverbal communication. According to the Centers for Disease Control, autism affects an estimated 1 in 59 children in the United States today.

Indicators of autism usually appear by age 2 or 3. Some associated development delays can appear even earlier, and often, it can be diagnosed as early as 18 months. Research shows that early intervention leads to positive outcomes later in life for people with autism.
