Goal: 15,000 Progress: 8,351
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.

Jul 30, 2016 Beth Hyde-Smith I'd like people to know that most autistic people don't support person-first language. We typically hate Autism Speaks, and ABA because of the damaging effects on both us and our community. We are autistic people, and if you love us, you love our autism.

Jul 6, 2016 Sally Read Just because a person with autism can struggle with expressing their thoughts and feelings to others, that does NOT mean that they are devoid of emotions or feelings. People with autism feel like anyone else does. They feel empathy. They feel love xxxx
