April is Autism Awareness Month, although this April is quite different than the last. Many people's lives - including those of individuals with autism and their families - have been dramatically altered by the coronavirus pandemic. Before coronavirus, I had written a Director's Message focused on recent advances in autism genetics research. That will be coming later in the month. But first, I felt the need to address the challenges faced by individuals with autism and their families during this difficult time.
