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.

Oct 21, 2014 Lynsey Farrelly Autism awareness must happen in Britain and globally for people everywhere on the spectrum who nedd the right diagnosis the right care and education and those everywhere who are subject to bullying of all forms in autism.
Oct 21, 2014 Megan Gregory My daughter has PDD-NOS. Sometimes I feel like no matter how much I try to explain to people, they refuse to try to understand her. I wish the world would work to become more educated.
Oct 20, 2014 (Name not displayed) Don't feel sorry for me just because I have three children with an ASD! I don't feel sorry for myself. I am very blessed! And, yes, it is rude to ask if they are all my biological children (but, yes, I did give birth to each of them).
Oct 20, 2014 Heather Sipe I've always learned through watching my son Dalton that it's not children with autism that need to change ; it's the people around them....

Oct 20, 2014 paul isaac I'd like everyone to know that people who have high functioning autism can seem like everyone else, but are often socially isolated and rejected because nobody thinks autism, they think arsehole. Stop judging people.
Oct 20, 2014 Karen Massetti Not all people with Autism are the same. Both my Daughter & I are upon the spectrum but this doesn't always mean we are affected in the same way...
Oct 20, 2014 Sinthya F Islam Autistic children are very unique and have their own way of doing things. They are not giving us a hard time, they are having a hard time making us understand their world. Please be very patient, kind and loving to them.

Oct 16, 2014 (Name not displayed) Autistic children want to be normal, but can't help it when they behave differently. They need patience & understanding.
