World Autism Awareness Day! #LightItUpBlue

 
April is Autism Awareness Month and today is World Autism Awareness Day.

Autism is a disorder that starts in early childhood that causes difficulty with social and communication skills.

Autism is the fastest growing developmental disability, affecting 1 in every 88 children.

It's more likely to affect boys than girls.

The cause is unknown.

Autism can range from mild to severe.




I am very passionate about spreading awareness because my nephew is autistic. 
So please research and learn more about autism. Don't just brush it off, you never know... it just may affect you and your family in the future.


Shine a light on Autism.
Let's get it trending. #LightItUpBlue
Don't forget to wear blue throughout the month!
