The Autism Society of America is proud to continue our Coronavirus Information Series with the third video created in partnership with MyHana, an autism support network designed to provide autism resources and support for parents and caregivers of autistic loved ones. 

On April 1, Autism Society CEO Christopher Banks joined Russell Lehmann and Kyle Weiss for a personal discussion on how their lives have been affected and altered by the realities of social isolation, quarantine, and COVID-19 as individuals on the autism spectrum.
