Goal: 15,000 Progress: 6,933
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.

Dec 17, 2014 Sabrina Howard Those who act like my child has a "disease". He has feelings. He's having a hard time, not giving a hard time. Or my favorite "acting like a spoiled brat". You've never been more Wrong! Educate yourself before you judge something you know Nothing about!
Dec 17, 2014 Carrie Burrell God only gives us challenges that we can handle. We will all be affected by the spirit in an autistic child or adult. We are taught compassion.
Dec 17, 2014 Amber Gaubatz That they don't just "grow out of it". It will be with them forever and they have to find a way each day to manage and progress.
Dec 17, 2014 Robin Willoughby Just because a child has autism it does not mean he/she is "damaged"!!! They are perfect the way God wanted them to be!!! The "ignorance" (uneducated) needs to be addressed!! These children are gifts from God and should be treated as such!!
Dec 17, 2014 jennifer boothe i want people to know that they are not bad kids. My child doesn't misbehave because he's naughty. He has meltdowns and acts out of impulse because he's autistic. Getting irritated and labeling him won't help anyone.
Dec 17, 2014 johna lehman Every child on the spectrum is unique. There is not a certain "look" a child on the spectrum has.

Dec 13, 2014 (Name not displayed) I've been a caregiver for over two years. I worked in a group home with four adult men who had autism. Mostly non verbal clients. One of the men, was very agrrssive, but I loved him dearly. I understood that its a form of communication, not a melt down!!

Nov 15, 2014 Kathi Moore A diagnosis of autism does not mean there's "something wrong with" someone, or that you're "putting a label on" someone. It means you know something different is going on, & giving the ISSUES a name (not the person), opens doors to solutions & answers.
