National Autism Awareness Month

The Testa Law Group would like to thank the Autism Society for their continued dedication to providing the latest information regarding autism treatment, education, research, and advocacy.

April is almost here.  Did you know that nearly a quarter-century ago, the Autism Society launched a national push to increase autism awareness, inclusion, and self-determination for all, and ensure that every person with ASD is presented the chance to produce the greatest possible quality of life? This year the Autism Society is going beyond their campaign to promote autism awareness and asks that friends, families, supporters, lawmakers, and collaborators become partners in the national movement to raise education, acceptance, and appreciation. This April, make a difference in the lives of families, educators, and advocacy groups by participating in Autism Awareness Month.

The nation must embrace a new perspective. For over 50 years the Autism Society worked in both large and small communities to ensure action by providing services and programming that supported all individuals living with autism. Today the Autism Society asks that the nation ensures acceptance and inclusion in schools and communities that will result in true gratefulness of the individual aspects of all people.

The Testa Law Group would again like to take a moment to recognize the Autism Society and ask that the nation join the Autism Society and the Testa Law Group in celebrating April as the National Autism Awareness Month!

National Autism Awareness Month is an opportunity to promote autism recognition, autism awareness, autism acceptance, and to draw attention to the tens of thousands of families facing an autism diagnosis each year, which may be the result of tainted or misbranded drugs containing heavy metals and other adverse toxins.
