Autism Awareness Month

By Alexa Marvroidis 

April is Autism Awareness Month and April 2 is Autism Awareness Day. I am not myself autistic, but I have had the privilege of serving as a peer mentor to many people of all ages on the spectrum, helping with everything from practice for a first job interview to helping people learn how to take care of the daily chores and tasks they need to do to live on their own. I can think of few moments in my career at ECNV more fulfilling than seeing someone learn a skill they felt worried they might never figure out or seeing them begin to discover ideas and solutions on their own that they felt too overwhelmed to notice before.
