April is Autism awareness month:
What Causes Autism?
Autism is something people are born with. No one knows exactly what causes it. It probably has something to do with a kid's genes and other things that change the way the brain develops.
Each of us learns differently.  Celebrate your learning, think about others and open your mind to diversity.
