I’m going to skip my biweekly words of reflection today and talk about something important going on this month. While bees spread pollen during spring, organizations are spreading awareness about autism in April.
There will be several activities running this month that will help raise awareness about autism, which is defined by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke as, “complex neurodevelopment disorders, characterized by social impairments, communication difficulties, and restricted, repetitive, and stereotyped patterns of behavior.” It is estimated that “three to six children out of every 1,000 will have an autism spectrum disorder.”
For more information, you can check out the NINDS website. And to find out what you can do participate in activities or help spread awareness, visit grassroots organization the Autism Society’s website. If you have any other resources, please leave a comment below.
Now on to our top 5 of the week including one post dedicated to this cause. Have a great weekend!
