BNtheMix/ April 2, 2019/ We all go through challenges in life, but what if your challenge was a life long problem like autism? Autism is a developmental disability that affects many people worldwide. The signs of Autism usually appears during early childhood. Imagine if you were a child and you had a hard time interacting with your peers. That is what a child with autism goes through every day. When a person with autism gets older, it does not get any easier, because other people may not understand this disorder.
In addition to having problems interacting with others, people with autism have a difficult time holding a conversation, making eye contact and have poor motor skills. Individuals with autism need all the help and support that they can get. You may think that there is nothing you can do for people with autism, but there is.
April is Autism Awareness Month, and you can show your support for individuals that are affected with autism. Many walks are scheduled around the United States that you can participate in to support people with autism. You can also spend time with a person that has autism, and get to know how they feel on a daily basis.
Show your support by wearing an autism ribbon on your clothes, or put a ribbon magnet on your refrigerator. Your hometown can also hold local events or activities that you can attend during Autism Awareness Month. Just contact your local Autism Society Affiliate to see if they hold events in your area.
Autism is a hard disorder to deal with, but with your support during Autism Awareness Month, you can promote acceptance and raise more awareness to the people around you. Take your first step today by learning more information about autism, and spread the word.
