World Autism Awareness Day

Today is also World Autism Awareness Day.

As a teacher, students with autism are near and dear to my heart. Over the last 6 years, I've worked with a few different children with autism and my heart definitely goes out to the families that struggle on a day to day basis.

If you work with kids or have kids or plan on having kids, you should make yourself aware of autism, its signs, and how it affects both the child and family.

I've included some sites below.

Learn the Signs. Act Early.
