April is here and it's time to raise awareness.

Remember that by making your statement and sharing your story you are making a real difference.  By raising awareness, we are striving to create communities that embrace and accept people with autism.  All your activities, regardless of the size, contribute to that goal.

Thank you to our 1,500 ambassadors in New Jersey and across the US making a difference.  Keep us posted!   

Check back here often throughout the month for updates.

Also, remember to visit Autism New Jersey's main website and Facebook Page for additional autism awareness news and info.

Introducing our Ambassadors of the Week!

New Prevalence Rates:

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) released a report showing 1 in 68 children nationally has an Autism Spectrum Disorder, with 1 in 45 in New Jersey.  The national rate marks an increase of 30% from the previous 1 in 88 statistic.  We are working on updating these figures in our online materials.  As you spread awareness, be sure to let people know about the new numbers.  You can learn more about the prevalence rates here.


We've fulfilled more than 315 supply order requests and have circulated an additional 300 free School Resource Packs.  These free resources are made available because of the generosity of our sponsors. Our ambassadors are armed with the tools they need to raise awareness.  We still have bookmarks and informational rack cards available, but supplies are limited.  You can order yours here (while supplies last).

What do you have planned?

Registered hub members can post their photos and events.  Or send information to and we'll post for you.
