April is National Autism Awareness Month in the United States. I searched all over the place to learn who declared this but couldn’t find anything. Does anyone out there know where I can find the statement declaring this?
The vast majority of my readers have an association with autism. There are probably more autism visitors than fragile x visitors. Fragile X syndrome is also associated with autism. Both of my fragile X children have autistic features and I think that Matthew might also have autism. I just don’t get him tested because it won’t change anything. Matthew loves things that spin. He stims and has meltdowns. He bites himself. He is majorly delayed. He hates eye contact. Rachel flaps her hands and stims. She also fights eye contact.
So I wanted something different for my blog for April. I did a little digging on the internet and I found an awesome sight that has fragile x and autism graphics. There are much more autism graphics. They are unique and gorgeous. There are graphics for those who have autism, grandparents, aunts, parents, and even friends. There are statistical graphics. Some graphics give facts. Some state the love of a child with autism: daughter, son, children, twins. There are those that focus on aspergers and pdd-nos. Some have pictures of adult children, young children, babies, teddy bears, etc. And if you have a myspace account there are even layouts. Check it out. It’s fun . Autism Awareness Graphics .
