During April, Icon Connects, LLC proudly celebrates Autism Acceptance Month. Autism
or Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a serious developmental disorder that impacts a
person’s nervous system affecting how a person acts, communicates, learns, and
interacts with others.
Founded in 1965, The Autism Society of America (ASA) is the oldest leading
grassroots autism organization in the Nation. According to its website, ASAs
“Celebrate Differences” campaign is “Designed to build a better awareness of the signs,
symptoms, and realities of autism. #CelebrateDifferences focuses on providing
information and resources for communities to be more aware of autism, promote
acceptance, and be more inclusive in everyday life.”
Icon Connects, LLC exists to eliminate discrimination. Including, discrimination
based on an individual’s ability to communicate and interact. We seek to ensure that
those affected by ASD are included in all aspects of everyday life. Click the link below
