What is Autism Awareness Month?
Autism Awareness Month was launched by the Autism Society in 1970 “to promote autism awareness and assure that all affected by autism are able to achieve the highest quality of life possible”.
At Relias, we put together some of our best resources to help teachers and families understand autism and how to properly use Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA). We hope these resources will help educators and parents feel confident in their ability to care and support autism spectrum disorders.
