Reflecting on Autism Awareness Month

With one week left on the April calendar, the C. Blohm & Associates team continues to recognize Autism Awareness Month by promoting autism awareness and acceptance throughout our many channels. As we move beyond this month of recognition, we begin to turn our focus to year-round acceptance for these amazing individuals with autism, and the families, friends and organizations that support them.
