Autism Awareness Day and Month

Autism affects 1 in 100 children; 1 in 70 boys.  April is Autism Awareness Month and today, April 2 is Autism Awareness Day.  As we move in time, there are larger numbers of students who have some aspect of the disorder.

Just so you know, many Autistic individuals and families dislike Autism speaks for not actually putting funds towards helping families and treating Autism as something to be gotten rid of and pitied rather than lived with.

Just food for thought.
