This March, we will focus on Women’s History Month to highlight Autistic women and diagnostic research. Additionally, we will observe Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month and share resources on signs, screening, and diagnosis. Our public policy resources provide guidance on navigating advocacy after the conclusion of the Covid-19 Public Health Emergency (PHE) on May 2023.
