WORLD AUTISM AWARENESS DAYToday marks the eighth annual World Autism Awareness Day. Autism is a pervasive developmental disorder that involves abnormal development and function of the brain. I’ve learnt that every child and adult on the Autism spectrum is different but in general people with autism show decreased social communication skills and restricted or repetitive patterns of behaviors or interests. As a new mother I cannot even start to understand how hard it must be on new parents to deal with such news so this year will be joining autism organizations, disability advocates, parents and people with autism from all over the world, to celebrate uniqueness and difference, and to raise awareness about Autism Spectrum Disorder the best way I can.
