5 Ways to Spread Autism Awareness when April is Over
As a practitioner and mother of a child diagnosed on the spectrum, the end of April tends to be a bittersweet time for me; it's when Autism Awareness Month comes to a close.
April is a time that brings the autism community together through events that raise awareness and money for research.
April is an opportunity for individuals who are not aware, to learn and open up their eyes to the world that has been blessed by people with autism.
We get 30 days to connect with people who share a commonality and grow awareness.
. . . . .
I have noticed that after April, the drive to spread awareness isn't as strong; the social media posts, events and marketing of educational material begins to die down.
Imagine the impact that would be made if awareness was spread with the same drive and dedication the other 11 months out of the year.
