World Autism Day

Today is World Autism Awareness Day. A day for focus, a day for reflection. How many children and adults in the UK, in the world, have Autism - and how many of those have no idea that they have Autism?

Those with Autism have a thousand shades of the condition, the "spectrum". They have social communication issues, they struggle to interact with others and have an imagination that can be obsessive and unable to see the way through the regular things of life.

There are reckoned to be between 6 and 10 out of every 1000 people who are on the spectrum, many with genetic connections, all with brain disorders and none with a cure. So, increase your awareness on this special day.
