Silver City, NM – The School of Social Work at Western New Mexico University will launch several awareness activities to commemorate National Autism Awareness Month (NAAM) the first week of April 2018!

Autism is a complex neurodevelopmental disability that typically appears during the first two years of life and affects a person's ability to communicate and interact with others. Autism is defined by a certain set of behaviors and is a "spectrum disorder" meaning that it affects individuals differently and to varying degrees. There is no known single cause for autism, but increased awareness and funding can help families today.
