Oswego County Proclaims Autism Awareness Month
Oswego County Legislature Chairman Barry Leemann recently designated April as Autism Awareness Month. To date, more than 60,000 New York State residents have been diagnosed with autism or autism spectrum disorders (ASDs). Early diagnosis, and intervention programs help many children and adults enjoy meaningful lives as members of our communities.
