Autism Awareness

By April 3, 2024April 8th, 2024Blog

The National Center for Disease Control & Prevention’s most recent data indicate that about one in 36 children in the U.S. have been identified with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), and that ASD is reported to occur in all racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic groups.

April is Autism Awareness Month. We invite you to join us and “Light It Up Blue” and wear blue throughout April. If you share photos on social media, you can @tag Spurwink – we’d love to see your photos!

Spurwink has the depth of resources and people needed to support people and their abilities. Currently, Spurwink serves over 600 people with ASD, and provides individuals and families an array of services, tailored to both youth and adults. Through a focus on the development of the whole person, attention to strengths, and recognition of unique needs, every child and adult with autism or intellectual disabilities is given the opportunity to realize his or her fullest potential, and are supported to lead healthy and engaged lives in their communities.

Autism support services Spurwink provides include consultation, case management, community support, outpatient therapy, educational services, and residential treatment. Locations are offered throughout Maine, and in some instances, telehealth services may be available.

If you or someone you know are interested in Spurwink’s services or how to support their services, visit contact us through our website contact form or call (207) 871-1200.
