Topic: Autism Awareness
Many of you may not be aware that this month is National Autism Awareness Month. In fact, today is World Autism Awareness Day. Most of you know that this syndrome has effected our family deeply. We have one child, Joshua, that has been diagnosed to be on the autism spectrum with Aspergers Disorder, and another child, Jacob, that has shown many of the same tendencies as Joshua and has thus far been diagnosed with sensory disorders, low muscle tone and speech difficulties. I am going to be highlighting many aspects of Autism in the coming weeks and have a surprise announcement that I can't quite make, yet, because it is still in the planning stages. This month, won't you make it a point to become aware of this affliction that effects 1 in every 110 children. If you don't have any relatives or friends that you can make yourself more awar for, do it for Joshua and Jacob.
