Goal: 15,000 Progress: 8,007
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.

Jun 10, 2015 (Name not displayed) My son has autism and is also an Aspie. He is a remarkable and sweet boy. I get very tired of people classifying him as a brat when he has a meltdown in public. Staring doesn't help. People need to recognize what a struggle this is for kids.
