April is Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) Awareness Month. Started nearly a quarter century ago by the Autism Society, National Autism Awareness Month is “a nationwide effort to promote autism awareness, inclusion and self-determination for all, and assure that each person with ASD is provided the opportunity to achieve the highest possible quality of life.”

A neurological condition, ASD affects the way a person experiences and interacts with the world. With a national prevalence estimated at 1 in 50 children, ASD is one of more than 300 conditions that put children at a higher risk for pediatric feeding disorder.
