San Diego, California - Today, Congressman Juan Vargas (CA-51) issued the following statement in honor of National Autism Awareness Month:

“I am honored to join the effort in raising autism awareness nationwide by recognizing April as National Autism Awareness Month.  Although we do not have full knowledge of this disorder, we must work toward being an inclusive society that meets the needs of individuals with autism. Working toward a broader understanding of autism will ensure that we are helping the children and families living with this disorder.
