Showing their Support


Today is World Autism Awareness Day.

A lot of people, across the country– were wearing blue to show support.
Including right here in North Dakota.
A mother stopped by Liberty Elementary to talk about her experience.
Her son has Autism and she spent some time in the classrooms talking about Awareness.
According to the C-D-C– approximately one in 59 children is diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder.
That accounts for one in 37 boys and one in 151 girls.
There is no medical detection for autism, but for parents, paying attention to developmental milestones is key.
The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends all children get screened for autism at their 18 and 25-month check up.
