This is something I strongly support.
I never tire explaining to everyone about Autism but if you can just take a moment of your time and google it or understand more about it, it will help a lot.
" in what way can it help ? why should i know about autism? "
This may be just some of the questions you ask yourself.
This is why.
It will help society better to understand others who has it. Sometimes...and I believe many don't even know that someone they know has autism or borderline autism.
This is a real experience that I faced before when an obviously shallow minded teacher said to my face, "Your son is stupid. I dont have time to teach your son."
I was too heart broken to respond to such a respond and just walked off. That was my reaction then. NOW if someone said that to me I will take the time to educate them about AUTISM and what it is all about.
Another good reason is for us to have more patience when we faced persons with autism or persons that seemed a tad unique than others. They need more time to understand about things better and may not respond as fast. Please give them time to respond and a chance to be a part of society.
What you can do to support this cause is to wear BLUE color clothing or just have anything BLUE and if you have the moment, please get to know more about what AUTISM and what it is really about.
THANK YOU :)
