World Autism Awareness Day

Today is World Autism Awareness Day.  1 in 150 individuals is diagnosed with autism, making it more common than pediatric cancer, diabetes, and AIDS combined. 

Chances are  someone close to you has a child with Autism or some other Autism Spectrum disorder.  It is a such an emotional condition for both the family and the child and awareness is important for everybody.  There are ways you can help even if it is just by gaining an understanding of the disorder.

Please take the time to visit the Autism Speaks website to learn more about autism and ways you can help.
