Goal: 15,000 Progress: 8,279
Sponsored by: The Autism Site

World Autism Awareness Day is April 2nd, and it's the perfect time to help increase awareness about issues concerning autism.

Autism affects people from all nations, of all colors, in all geographic regions. And the occurrences of autism are only increasing. Caring for individuals with autism as well as educating others about its realities have proven tremendous goals, but we can all make a difference by creating more awareness around this condition.

For example, did you know that some with autism are highly artistic, or exhibit heightened memorization abilities, or are extremely adept with miniscule details?

Shedding some of the stereotypes and reinforcing the facts are a great way to honor World Autism Day. Please sign our pledge, and in the comments section, let us know something you'd like others to be aware of about autism.

Apr 5, 2016 Ruby King It is possible to be on the Autism Spectrum & not exhibit obvious impairments/behaviours as specified in the diagnostic criteria. Individuals may have found a way of adapting (with/without support). Anyone could be Autistic even if it doesn't seem so!

Mar 24, 2016 Catherine Pennycoff I am the mother of a child on the spectrum. Asperger's is often overlooked because of the high functioning capacity these children often display. Unfortunately because of their ability to "function", other behavioral problems are overlooked.
