In 2023, the Center for Disease Control updated the autism prevalence statistic from 1 in 44 to 1 in 36. The nature of autism is ubiquitous. You likely cross paths with an autistic person every single day, often without even realizing it. Autism influences every facet of life-your neighborhood, your children's school, your workplace and so much more.

As we raise awareness and acceptance of those living with autism, we need to recognize it is a true "spectrum" disorder, which ranges from those who are profoundly affected and require the highest level of care to those who are able to advocate for themselves and live independently.

One thing we know for sure: Where there are people, there is autism; and where there is autism, there is Autism Alliance of Michigan (AAoM). Since our founding in 2009, AAoM has worked tirelessly to shed light on the challenges of living with autism while building bridges to critical resources and supports that have the ability to change the trajectory of someone's life.
