Products that support Autism awareness

Since the 1970s, April has been designated as Autism Awareness Month, a time to educate and highlight Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASDs). According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), it is estimated that 1 in every 88 children is identified as having some form of ASD. While there is no cure, there are early intervention treatments and resources available.

To raise money and awareness throughout the month of April, many companies and individuals have created Autism Awareness products like the ones featured below. From jewelry to candles to cuddly stuffed bears, every item benefits children with ASDs in some way. It’s a great way to start a dialogue about Autism while giving a little back.
