Autism Awareness Day Blog Tour & Giveaway


Today is Autism Awareness Day and, having known people with autism, when I saw R J Scott looking for people to host as part of this tour to promote awareness I couldn't not sign up. You can see RJ's master post here.

But for now here are some facts you might not know about autism.

Facts

While some people with autism live independent lives, others may need a lifetime of specialist support. Autism can have a profound and sometimes devastating effect on individuals and families.
Autism doesn't just affect children. Children with autism grow up to be adults with autism.

Some people with autism have an accompanying learning disability, learning difficulty or mental health problem. 
One of the best known forms of autism is Asperger syndrome. People with the condition are often of average or above-average intelligence. They have fewer speech problems than people with other types of autism, but may find it difficult to understand and process language.
While some people with autism live independent lives, others may need a lifetime of specialist support. Autism can have a profound and sometimes devastating effect on individuals and families.
