For one day in the year we stop and think about Autism. Monday April 2, 2012 is World Autism Awareness Day. This should mean that Autism is mentioned on the news, talked about in cafes and bars, discussed on TV and shared via social networking.
In our household every day of the year is Autism Awareness Day. Every morning, every mealtime, every trip out in the car, every discussion, every decision, almost every moment we have to be autism aware.
So, Monday will be no different.
Except it will - because everyone else can think about it too!! So go on, I dare you!! Try and imagine a household with Autism and if you can't, then ask a parent or carer and they will fill you in. And thanks for being aware - it means a lot.
