Today is April 2nd, 2009. World Autism Awareness Day.
"World Autism Awareness Day shines a bright light on autism as a growing global health crisis. WAAD activities help to increase and develop world knowledge of the autism epidemic and impart information regarding the importance of early diagnosis and early intervention. Additionally, WAAD celebrates the unique talents and skills of persons with autism and is a day when individuals with autism are warmly welcomed and embraced in community events around the globe." -World Autism Awareness Day
As some of you may know Autism Awareness is very important to me. I have three family members who have been diagnosed with Autism. Yes they may be different from you and I. But they are just as beautiful and wonderful. It's important that YOU know all that you can about Autism.
