Autism is a complex biological condition that affects a person’s ability to communicate and develop social relationships, and is often accompanied by behavioral challenges. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released new data on the prevalence of autism in the United States. This surveillance study identified 1 in 68 children (1 in 42 boys and 1 in 189 girls) as having autism spectrum disorder (ASD). The CDC has called autism a national public health crisis.

About The Color of Autism Foundation
The Color of Autism Foundation is the Michigan’s only nonprofit autism organization, dedicated to advocacy, awareness and knowledge among Black parents, connecting families across the country to local services, and providing one-to-one support. African American children frequently go undiagnosed or are misdiagnosed.
Part of the issue is access to services and the other is the stigma of having a developmental disability in the African American community. Unfortunately, these factors have caused many African Americans with autism to end up in the criminal justice system.
