CDC's Updated Autism Rates
The U.S. Center for Disease Control has released its most recent statistics for autism rates. The new statistics show 1 in 68 children in the United States is on the autism spectrum. One out of 42 boys is affected by autism. The library does have an online resource for families, our Autism Resources Guide. We also offer monthly storytimes for special needs families. For April’s Autism Awareness Month’s event we are conducting an autism scavenger hunt on April 24th from 1 PM – 3 PM. We will be hiding Autism Awareness ribbons in the Children’s Department. Find them all and win a small prize. All children and their grownups are welcome.
