April is Autism Awareness Month

Autism AwarenessApril is the month in which the United States highlights Autism Spectrum Disorders, resources for living on the Spectrum. If Autism has touched your life in any way, this month is about you and those you love.

At the Library, we try to provide timely and credible resource materials for parents and others dealing with autism issues. Resources include information on diagnosis, parenting, achieving more with autism, and life stories of those dealing with autism.

Here are some selections for your consideration. Ask a librarian for help in locating other resources as this or other libraries.
