Through your gift, you are contributing to our mission to unlock and nurture human potential in people living with emotional, behavioral or cognitive differences.

In honor of Autism Awareness Month in April, Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health a leading provider of autism services for children, adolescents and adults wants to highlight the need for greater understanding, compassion and support to help individuals diagnosed with autism lead more independent, fulfilling and socially connected lives.

“Individuals with autism offer a wonderful and different perspective on life. They have a true desire to be part of their communities, and we are here to provide those opportunities,” said Devereux Executive Director of Autism Services Todd Harris, Ph.D.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately 1 in every 59 children in the United States is diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder, a 15 percent increase from 1 in every 68 children just two years earlier.

The CDC states that ASD occurs in all racial, ethnic and socioeconomic groups, but is about four times more common among boys (1 in 37) than among girls (1 in 151).
