Family First: Autism acceptance month

Family First

In our Family First Segment: April is “Autism Acceptance Month” to raise awareness and encourage inclusion for those living with autism.

It’s a developmental disability characterized by social and communication challenges.
Leaders at the Local organization, Autism Up say it is not a mental illness, bad behavior, or always associated with cognitive impairment.

We spoke with doctor Dr. Susan Hyman from The University of Rochester Medical Center about advancements in treatment.
