Autism Awareness Month recognized in Enterprise

Autism Awareness Month 2023

 Mayor William E. Cooper Friday proclaimed April 2023 as ‘Autism Awareness Month’ in the City of Progress. 

Surrounded by children, parents and caregivers, Cooper said that according to the Centers for Disease Control, autism affects one in 36 children. Those diagnosed with autism face unique challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech and nonverbal communication.

“Autism affects each individual in different ways. Autism knows no racial, ethnic or social boundaries and affects young and old alike in the City of Enterprise,” Cooper said. “Educating families, professionals, and the general public to better understand this lifelong disorder are vital to the future growth and development of the individuals affected.”

Cooper said the Enterprise community is committed to working with the Autism Society of Alabama to support those individuals and their families.

The Boll Weevil Monument in downtown Enterprise will be lit up blue in early April for Autism Awareness Month.
