April is Autism Month

world autism awareness dayIn December 2007, the United Nations (UN) General Assembly designated April 2 as World Autism Awareness Day. Disability organizations around the nation now celebrate April as #AutismAwareness and #AutismAcceptance Month.  As part of this celebration, Liz Weintraub interviewed Ben Kaufman, whose brother Aaron has autism, for her Tuesdays with Liz: Disability Policy for All video series. Ben talks about this brother and the bond between all of the Kaufman family siblings.  Ben also speaks about the need to include siblings in policies like the Family and Medical Leave Act, a top priority for the SLN!
