Goal: 15,000 Progress: 8,412
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 31, 2017 (Name not displayed) Being the parent to an autistic child has been the most rewarding experience I've ever lived. Autism is not a defect, it's a different way of thinking. I'm grateful to see the world in ways most people never get to.

Nov 4, 2016 Brandi Batista I just want everyone to realize that my son, that people with any disorder, can understand you and what is happening around them. They may not be able to communicate it like we can, but it doesn't mean that they are not aware. More than we know at times.

Oct 21, 2016 (Name not displayed) Doctors and teachers think that we should always medicate children with autism, adhd, odd and other behavior ,mental and emotional issues. My daughter has a voice and it will not be silenced with medication. I believe there are other ways to help them.
