World Autism Awareness Day

Today is World Autism Awareness Day aimed at encouraging people to ‘Stand up’ for autism and show their support.

Autism and Asperger syndrome (a form of autism), are often misunderstood disabilities which can be difficult to diagnose. They are hidden disabilities, i.e. not physical or obvious, and the social issues that many people with autism and Asperger syndrome have means others might interpret their actions incorrectly.

So for World Autism Awareness Day show your support and raise understanding of the disability by simply going on Twitter or Facebook where you will also find information on events, fundraising and family holidays.

Oh and I found a picture of Gordon Ramsey on the National Autism Society‘s Facebook page that I thought I’d throw in – see even the celeb’s are getting involved!
