As part of my day job, I have the pleasure of working with children diagnosed with one or more of the Autism Spectrums up close and personal. It’s such a joy to watch a child flourish and grow, while experiencing life in a classroom setting. Any child tugs on my heart, but seeing the progress an Autistic child can make, is a special joy to experience. One of the biggest frustrations I face as an educator, is the lack of quality information to share with parents and grandparents raising an Autistic child. What a joy to discover Autism United!
Autism United is a champion of the cause! Their resources, articles and activities, on their site are a gold mine for parents, families and educators, too. Raising awareness about Autism and supporting the children, adults and families that experience the ups and downs on a daily basis, is something that everyone needs to rally around.
Autism United offers lots of ways for you to make a difference. You can join their site and help raise awareness about Autism. You can reach out to someone you know that is Autistic or has an Autistic child and be a support system. There are so many ways that you can make difference in the lives of these children and their families. Giving back in any way you can, will warm your heart and soul. It takes a village to raise child and you are part of that village. Autism awareness is something near and dear to my heart and I would love to have you join in and be a champion for Autism awareness.
You can also find Autism United on Facebook. Please check it out, I am sure you will like what they have to offer. Plus, Autism United has partnered with companies, like TOMS to bring you special sales and coupons on their website. It is definitely something worthwhile to experience.
