Today is World Autism Day -- raising awareness about autism. April is Autism Awareness Month -- raising awareness about autism. I coordinate the Autism Spectrum Support Group of Southern Maryland. I live with autism, diagnosed, undiagnosed, and now, after receiving results from my daughter's special education testing, "highly likely." I am aware of autism every single day.
Current numbers from the CDC show 1 in 88 children affected by autism. If you know me, you know three. I'll wear blue today, light it up blue today, and post multiple pictures and links about autism today. And live in awareness of autism 364 more days before World Autism Awareness Day 2013.
