DPS is raising awareness for both Autism Awareness Month and National Child Abuse Prevention Month this April.

Houston, TX (4/1/2019) — In support of National Child Abuse Prevention month and Autism Awareness Month, DPS will be kicking off a social media awareness initiative through our DPS Cares campaigns. Throughout the month we will share facts, statistics and ways you can help on our social media channels including, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and LinkedIn.

April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month. This month, and throughout the year, Dean’s Professional Services encourages all individuals and organizations to play a role in making our community a better place for children and families. Our goal is to ensure that parents have the knowledge, skills and resources they need to care for their children. We can help prevent child abuse and neglect by creating strong and thriving children, youth, and families in our communities. Research shows that protective factors are present in healthy families. Promoting these factors is among the most effective ways to reduce the risk of child abuse and neglect.

April is also Autism Awareness Month, and our goal will be to educate the public about autism. Autism is a complex mental condition and developmental disability, characterized by difficulties in the way a person communicates and interacts with other people. Autism can be present from birth or form during early childhood (typically within the first three years). Autism is a lifelong developmental disability with no single known cause. Throughout the month, DPS will join the cause of increasing the global understanding and acceptance of people with Autism.
