APRIL 2nd is WORLD AUTISM DAY!!I wrote this a couple of years ago and it’s become a tradition of mine to start Autism Awareness month with it!  Here’s to finding a CURE!  God Bless You all!!

Hi Im Autism!

Hi! Im Autism…
I am like a thief in the night…
I come to unsuspecting kids!
I DONOT  discriminate!
I don’t care if you are POOR. RICH. BLACK. WHITE. PURPLE. GREEN!!!!
I am in very single neighbor hood.
I can be your next door neighbor!
I rob you of your child of  speech and rational thoughts!
Although I am told, I am intelligent…is a matter of a fact, they believe that I inhabited Einstein!
Who am I?
I am AUTISM! I AM AUTISM! I am here to stay! I am not leaving! I have been here since the DAWN OF MAN!
I am devastation!
I am heartbreaking!
I can be your worst nightmare!
I GROW in numbers, every  twenty minutes, a child will be diagnosed in my SPECTRUM!
You have no idea who I will strike next! 
How can I be beaten!??

EDUCATION!
ADVOCACY!

This doesn’t have to be IT!  If we ban together we CAN come up with the CURE!  WE CAN BEAT THIS!  I have faith… And so should you!  Here’s to a FABULOUS AUTISM AWARENESS MONTH!

    Great cause!

    I am a former Special Ed. teacher who has worked with many, many children who have Autism.

    The rates in which Autism are rising are terrifying.

    Something definitely needs to be done!
