April is the start of National Autism Awareness Month.

Children and adults in the United States suffer through this unfortunate disease. The White House, who is also acknowledging April as autism month, explained that 1 in 88 children are growing up in America with autism. Autism can start at the age of three and lasts a person's life, according to the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention.

But while a person may be living with autism, that doesn't stop people from doing things others do. In March 2012, reporter Jennifer Preyss wrote about Arnold "A.J." Davis, who was diagnosed with autism at age 13, but managed to graduate college.

During this month, I'm interested in speaking with people who have autism and finding out what have you done after being diagnose with autism.

I've been away from this blog for some time, but I'm interested to understand health in the Crossroads. Please contact me if you have a health idea or story.
