autism_5Sheldon, Iowa — April is Autism Awareness month and Village Northwest Unlimited in Sheldon is using it as an opportunity to raise awareness for Autism Spectrum Disorder, or ASD, in support of individuals and families who are living on the Autism spectrum.

Lisa Johnson is Director of Development for Village Northwest Unlimited, and she tells us how the Village is becoming involved with Autism Awareness Month.

Johnson explains Autism Spectrum Disorder.

She says that Autism Spectrum Disorder is very common, affecting 1 in every 68 children.

Johnson tells us that Village Northwest Unlimited has begun a program to help those with ASD to more easily transition from high school to independent adulthood.
