April is Autism Awareness Month.

It's not only about making people aware that autism exists. One in 68 individuals in the United States have autism. Most people know someone or know of someone that's affected by it.

Nature was brought to life in front of them and I was able to see the direct impact that it had on them, whether it was a large smile or scream of joy!
