Thank you, autism community, for your outpouring of support

Dear Autism Community,

Thank you for your immense kindness and gracious outpouring of encouragement. We are humbled by your votes of confidence and frustration with the status quo, and inspired by the beautiful and sometimes harrowing stories you shared.

As we further develop our education and advocacy agenda we will alert families and practitioners to targeted opportunities to facilitate progress. Together, we are changing the national conversation about autism.

On behalf of the NCSA board of directors, we humbly thank you,

Jill Escher, President
