WHY AUTISM AWARENESS IS IMPORTANT
  • People are still asserting that Autism is a popular diagnosis and have no idea what are the Autism Signs
  • "He seems NORMAL, I couldn't even tell that he's autistic..."
  • Autism is a SPECTRUM Disorder
  • No two children with Autism are the same, each one is DIFFERENT
  • The RIGHT for INCLUSION
  • More ACCEPTANCE in the communities
  • Autism is on the RISE: "1 in 68" children is diagnosed with Autism
  • It is very important to become aware of what Autism is and Learn the Autism Signs
  • EARLY INTERVENTION is highly recommended for the improvement of the child's development
  • HIGH COST of Interventions & therapies
