Awareness - Day 2

Back to basics. Part of promoting awareness is promoting education. And you can start with YOU. Before we can fully immerse ourselves in the issues surrounding autism we need to know what exactly it is that we are discussing. Maybe you've seen a film about autism or read an article in a magazine. Perhaps you've even met someone with autism or know someone who knows someone, who knows someone... But, do you really know what autism is? Often times our understanding of autism is skewed by inaccurate information we receive from others who could really use some education themselves. So, I challenge you to learn something new today - to really educate yourself about autism and to test out the things you already thought you knew.
