Goal: 15,000 Progress: 8,231
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.

Nov 27, 2015 Bernice Bradley I have two autistic grandsons. People need to be more understanding that they cannot control a lot of things. Educating ourselves on what this disorder is would hopefully help people understand them. I get tired of people calling them retarded.
Nov 25, 2015 (Name not displayed) My daughter is partially autistic. She is beautiful and very sociable. She likes to be with family and friends who love her a lot. I am so blessed. And she is my angel. People are taking more attention to autism and caring a lot more.

Nov 10, 2015 Bill Gemmell I love my son and am very proud of the beautiful man he is.
Nov 10, 2015 (Name not displayed) Autism should be on the news everyday. There are still too many people out there that don't understand it and don't know what it is. All of the children I have come across with Autism - each one is separate and special.
