World Autism Awareness Day

Click here to see RJ Scott's Master Post 

Welcome to the blog! Today we are celebrating Autism Awareness. While Googling, trying find something to write about that didn't include a bunch of statistics, I came across a YouTube video that said exactly what I was thinking. 

Stats are great, but they don't help in the day to day life when someone encounters a person with aspergers or autism. They are different, but that doesn't mean they are deficient, only that they think and communicate differently from what we are used to. Everyday they struggle to understand us, and I think its only fair to show the same patience to understand them.

I've attached the video I found. It's simple and to the point. I'm not going to clutter the post up with book promo. There are tabs to the right that will take you the other pages if you're interested.

Also for the contest for today, make sure you leave a comment with an email address. Two winners will get to select an eBook from my back list. Contest ends 11:59 p.m. on April 2nd EST. Enjoy!!

Boys are nearly five times more likely than girls to have autism.

I have a nephew who was diagnosed with autism when he was around two or so. He's a beautiful, bright boy and we love just as he is. *smooches*

  11. Thank you for being part of this Autism awareness blog tour and for sharing that informative and inspiring video. I have worked in the education sector for few years, so I am aware and have experienced the wide and varied autism spectrum through students, friends and work colleagues. I think the key thing and issue is that is a hidden condition and a friend of mine, who has Aspergers, constantly has to advise others almost as if she has to apologise. slholland22 {at} hotmail {dot} com
