Autism Awareness Month
April is Autism Awareness month and April 2 is World Autism Day. We hope everyone will wear blue and try and start conversations about Autism. At National Autism Resources we try our best to be encouraging because we believe all people can do great things and everyone deserves respect. However, raising a child on the spectrum is often a long and difficult journey.
20 years ago autism only affected 1 in 10,000 children. Now autism is affecting conservatively 1 in 110 children. Autism is now the most common childhood disability. Many professionals and teachers are not trained in how to support and work with these kids. The professionals that do have training can’t meet the demand. We need more resources for parents, teachers and researchers.
Let’s talk about the needs of our community and work together to raise awareness!
