Goal: 15,000 Progress: 7,300
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.

Jan 30, 2015 Miriam Aune Autism does grow up. Those little kids who were diagnosed in the early 1990s are in their mid- 20 today. They have nowhere to go and nothing to do. There is a large chasm between the end of school and the nursing home.

Jan 30, 2015 Preeda Kodani My 9 yr old niece has autism. Before she was born I never knew what autism was. She has opened my eyes and has taught me a lot about life and what it means to love. She loves to give hugs and is always smilling. She is as normal as every one else.

Jan 30, 2015 Cynthia Notarianni When his frustration overwhelms him and he acts out in public, he is not being a brat. Don't judge him. You have not walked in his shoes. You do not know the sadness he feels when no one his age really understands him.

Jan 30, 2015 (Name not displayed) My grandson is autistic and he is just like any other little boy, maybe a little more curious??? They want what all the other kids want, they just have a harder time of saying what they want. He is in preK. and the work they do with them is wonderful.

Jan 30, 2015 (Name not displayed) I would love others to know each child who has autism is not the same. That is a child on the store is having a complete melt down that it not because they are spoiled it may be because it is over stimulating for this child and they may have autism.
Jan 30, 2015 Derreck Durham They are geniuses. Very beautiful children. Don't judge
Jan 30, 2015 Jill Sharp My nephew has Asperger Syndrome - I just want people to be more aware - understanding and tolerant - we are all different and unique in our own special way !!
