Light it Up Blue

Today is World Autism Awareness Day.  I have written about this over the years, most recently last Monday.  My passion on this topic has become to urge people to understand what autism really is and how to interact with autistic people.  There are many good websites.  This one from kidshealth.org is my favorite.  What can you do to emotionally support someone with autism?  What can you do to support that person’s family?  Even a really high functioning autistic kid needs a lot of support from his or her family, and it can be physically, emotionally and financially draining.

Right now my autistic son is practicing with the track team — not as the “autistic kid” on the junior high track team, but as a kid who can run like the wind.

Learn what autism really means.
