International Autism Awareness Day 🧩

Hey my friends!

For those of you that don’t know, today is International Autism Awareness Day and April is Autism Awareness month.

1 in 54 children are on the Autism spectrum. A child is usually diagnosed between the age of 2 or 3. If you are wondering about the signs, there are many signs, but one sign that I remember is that child will begin to stop communicating. It’s almost as if one day they just go into this shell.

A person with autism has difficulties with their communication and as a result they tend to get frustrated when people cannot understand them. The one thing we can point out is that people living with autism are generally extremely smart individuals and have great memories.

Let’s continue to raise awareness about Autism. This is a cause that is so personal for me.

Today is Autism Awareness Day…

Hey my friends!

Those of you that have been following me for awhile know how much this cause means to me.

I encourage all of you to read about autism and truly understand:

  1. What is autism?
  2. What are the signs of autism?
  3. How does autism affect not only that person, but that person’s family?
  4. What can I do to help that person with autism?

I am not at all an expert in this field, but I do have experience growing up with someone I love dearly that has a mild form of autism. If you have any questions that I can assist with, please leave me a comment and I will help in any way I can.

Until next time…night night 💋
