National Autism Awareness Month

Throughout April it will be National Autism Awareness Month, a chance to highlight autism, a condition which is thought to affect a staggering 1 in 110 children.

The month was first established in the 1970s to keep the public informed about autism and how to help sufferers within the community.

The easiest way to mark this special month is to wear one of the Autism Society's Autism Awareness Puzzle Ribbons, showing your support.

By using websites such as facebook or twitter you can also update your status to raise awareness and spread the word.

By making a donation or volunteering to help out in your local area, you can really make a difference and shine a light on an issue which many people feel uncomfortable talking about.

Visit The National Autistic Society website to find out more information about how you can involved in National Autism Awareness Month.

There are lots of tips on how to raise money and awareness to help people with autism and aspergers, so why not get involved today and help out with a fantastic cause!
