Adult Autism Awareness Day

April 18th is recognized as Adult Autism Awareness Day, a day dedicated to raising awareness about autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in adults. Although autism is often associated with children, it is a lifelong condition that affects individuals well into adulthood. In fact, the prevalence of autism in adults is estimated to be around 1.7% of the population, and yet, many people are still unaware of the challenges faced by adults with autism.
