April 2023: Autism Awareness Month
April is Autism Awareness Month. It’s an annual observance in the month of April that aims to raise public awareness about autism spectrum disorder (ASD), a developmental disorder that affects communication, social interaction, and behavior.
In honor of this special month, Highpoint Fitness has two initiatives we want to share.
One, we will be celebrating and encouraging acceptance, understanding, and inclusion with daily acts of kindness. Watch for our daily quotes of kindness throughout the month of April.
Two, for each new membership in April, we will make a $15 donation to Autism Connection of PA, a 501(c)(3) non-profit serving people across Pennsylvania.
Autism Connection of PA’s mission is to be a lifeline and hub for families and adults, providing support, information, and advocacy. Founded in 1996, the Autism Connection of Pennsylvania serves thousands of families, professionals, and adults seeking help for autism questions and concerns. Autism Connection staff understand your perspective. They provide email and telephone support, autism news, sensory-friendly activities, and training for parents, professionals, educators, and first responders, and the organization sponsors support groups across Pennsylvania.
Join us in April to inspire a kinder, gentler world for all!
