Autism Awareness Month

Nearly 50 years ago, The Autism Society declared April Autism Awareness Month -  a time when organizations and individuals work together to increase awareness, understanding, and acceptance of people with autism. As medical research continues to work towards understanding the condition, academics too have made great contributions to a deeper understanding of Autism and the experience of those living along the spectrum. Many JHU Press journals - ranging in subject matter from psychology to ethics, publish research and critical thinking that touches on those with autism. Here is a selection of titles, though many more are available (now with free access) on Project Muse.
