April 2020 – A Note from Jenny

“Prematurity doesn’t always end in the NICU.” I remember hearing those words as I watched my incredibly fragile micro-preemie through a clear plastic incubator. This isn’t the case for all preemies, but for my Joshua, these words proved to be true.

As April is National Autism Awareness Month, this is a great opportunity to promote autism awareness and draw attention to the many preemie families facing an autism diagnosis while sharing resources to help navigate this new journey.

Autism Speaks is dedicated to promoting solutions for the needs of people with autism and their families. https://www.autismspeaks.org/

Preemie Crystal Ball is working to create a preemie registry to provide better patient outcomes – from the NICU to the adult years. Join the movement! https://crytsalballhealth.com/
