World Autism Awareness Day

Today is World Autism Awareness Day. People all over the world are wearing blue for autism awareness.

“Autism is a complex developmental disability that typically appears during the first three years of life and affects a person’s ability to communicate and interact with others. Autism is defined by a certain set of behaviors and is a “spectrum disorder” that affects individuals differently and to varying degrees. There is no known single cause for autism, but increased awareness and funding can help families today.” (Autism Society of America)

For more information on autism, visit the For Autistic Kids website.
