Are you a person living with autism, or a caregiver to a child or adult with the disorder? No matter what your connection to autism is, if you have a story you'd like to share, we'd love to hear it.

April is Autism Awareness month -- and The Daily Apple will highlight the cause in this month's installment of our Year of Awareness series. Reports show that autism spectrum disorder is estimated to affect 2 million individuals in the United States, including 1 out of 68 children. If you're affected, we would like to hear about your experiences firsthand in any form you choose, including photos and video.

Any entries received will be considered for use in our coverage of Autism Awareness Month and can be emailed to health@newsday.com.
