Autism Awareness 2014
It’s April. It’s Princess Roo’s birthday month, and it’s Autism Awareness Month. I’m aware of the irony of having a child on the autism spectrum whose birthday is during Autism Awareness Month. We’re making plans to celebrate and, as always, I’m doing what I can to educate others and make them aware of what people with autism face.
I’m headed out to a local Autism Awareness rally now, and I’m decked out for the occasion.
The girls have chosen to wear blue today too, and we’re excited to see what support there is locally for the autism community.
I would also like to remind you of some resources you might want to read and share:
- 10 Things You Need to Know About Autism, a post I wrote for HEDUA last year.
- Autism Awareness Month, my April 2013 efforts that provide information, resources, and inspiration for families who have children with autism and those who want more information.
I participate in Autism Awareness Month because I believe it’s important. But I also have a very personal reason:
