World Autism Awareness Day!

April 2 is World Autism Awareness Day. World Autism Awareness Day (WAAD) aims to put a spotlight on the hurdles that people with autism and others living with autism face every day.

Autism spectrum disorder is a condition that affects how the brain functions. It affects how a person communicates with, and relates to, other people. It also affects how they make sense of the world around them.

A person who has autism is said to have ASD. This is because the symptoms of autism can vary from person to person and can range from mild to very severe. Asperger’s syndrome is an ASD on the mild end of the spectrum.

World Autism Awareness Day goes further to celebrate the unique talents of those with autism.
