Today is National Autism Awareness Day

Today is National Autism Awareness Day, but to some of us, this is every day. However, I always wear blue on this day in support of my daughter who has autism, along with a long list of other spectrum related disorders.

For the past few years, there has been a controversy going around on Autism Speaks. Whether you support them or not, I believe you should spread the awareness on autism itself. Become a voice for someone who has autism. Educate yourself and spread awareness.

Fact: 1 out of 59 kids are diagnosed with autism. There is NO cure. However, there should be acceptance and not ignorance.

Blue is for National Autism Awareness Day


Blue is the color that represents Autism and today is National Autism Awareness Day. People all over the world are ‘lighting it up blue’ to show support or to honor someone they know with Autism. A lot of people are wearing blue today for the same reason.
