The month of April is Autism Awareness and Acceptance Month.  And during May NCSS will be holding the 9th annual Autism Walk at Collins Perley in St. Albans.  Autism spectrum disorder is made up of a group of complex neurodevelopment disorders resulting in repetitive patterns of behavior and difficulties with social communication and interaction. The symptoms are present from early childhood and can affect daily functioning. Individuals with autism have widely different abilities. Some children with an autism spectrum disorder may have a serious lifelong disability.  However, with appropriate treatment and training, some children can develop certain aspects of independence in their lives.  Today we’ll discuss the various programs and services that NCSS provides individuals diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder plus, the upcoming Autism Walk.
