Today is World Autism Awareness Day. I wanted to just post a few words and some puzzle ideas (Autism trademark). I have family, friends and coworkers that have Autistic children. My admiration and love goes out to each one of them!
http://www.autism-society.org: 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. The prevalence of autism had risen to 1 in every 110 births in the United States and almost 1 in 70 boys. Autism is treatable. Children do not "outgrow" autism, but studies show that early diagnosis and intervention lead to significantly improved outcomes.
Just a few ideas for incorporating puzzle pieces into your Autism awareness campaigns...
