Letís talk about what we donít know.

April is Autism Awareness Month

What do you know about autism?

Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is the fastest growing developmental disability in Oregon. People with autism communicate and interact with others differently.

Autistic behaviors include:

  • Delayed language learning
  • Trouble making eye contact
  • Difficulty holding a conversation
  • Problems reasoning and planning
  • Narrow and intense interests
  • Poor motor skills
  • Sensory sensitivities

Those with autism may have only a few of these behaviors. They also may have many and even more. Signs usually show up in early childhood.

The good news is that autism is treatable. You can learn more about autism by visiting AutismSocietyOregon.org

Want to get involved? Join the 16th Annual Autism Walk on April 22.

Previous Health Months

Hello.

We have exciting news to share. ODS is changing its name to Moda Health.

Moda comes from the latin term "modus" and means "a way". We picked it because that's what we are here to do: help our communities find a way to better health.

Together, we can be more, be better.
