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.

Feb 15, 2015 Stacey Cater People need to know there are diff. "stages/levels"AND it is not the same as Down's Syndrome!
Feb 15, 2015 Mary Lou Loesch these children need constant attention, plenty of therapy appointments, speech, physical etc. if you work for a living and have a benefit pkg, it covers very little with regards to autism. Even Easter Seals charges $65. For 30 minutes, twice a week

Feb 11, 2015 kristin russell people with autism are exactly who they're supposed to be.
Feb 11, 2015 Rebecca Wilcox-Ball Autism is different for everyone. It doesn't make the struggle any easier. A child with a meltdown isn't a "brat", no child should ever be called a "brat". A little compassion and understanding go a long way.
