April is Autism Awareness Month!

My family and I have been personally affected by this disease, my brother is affected by it. There is a lot of information about this disease at the following sites. I would encourage everyone to educate themselves about this disease so we can all be empowered. Knowledge is power.

Autism Speaks


Autism Awareness Puzzle and Ribbon Clip Art

ABA Resources for Recovery from Autism/PDD/Hyperlexia

Guidelines: Identifying, Serving, and Educating Children and Youth with Autism

Mark Leland's Missing Pieces, a song for Autism

The Charity Guide

  1. Wow, thanks for all the links. Unfortunately, more and more families are affected by Autism. You're right, knowledge is power!

  2. Thanks for the reminder about Autism awareness. I work in public school and it amazes me how many children this affects.
    I agree ....knowledge is power!
    Have a great week!
