World Autism awareness day

"Autism spectrum disorder and autism are both general terms for a group of complex disorders of brain development. These disorders are characterized, in varying degrees, by difficulties in social interaction, verbal and nonverbal communication and repetitive behaviours."
I dont know much about Autism to be honest but one thing I do know about is the importance of raising awareness. So I have done a bit of research to learn more about Autism myself but also to try and help educate others on Autism. I have not had much interaction with people who have Autism, I have one friend with Autism but due to living far away from each other I do not have much interaction with him at all. Many of us would not know how to act around a person with Autism if we were put in a situation of just you and a person experience Autism and thats ok and that is why we have Autism awareness day- to educate people and prepare them for situations like that.
So here is some information which I have got from a website all about Autism. As I am not well educated on the subject I did not feel it would be right if I tried to educate my readers. Click here to visit the website to gain more information regarding Autism.
Other website regarding Autism are:

What causes Autism?
"We now know that there is no one cause of autism just as there is no one type of autism. Over the last five years, scientists have identified a number of rare gene changes, or mutations, associated with autism. A small number of these are sufficient to cause autism by themselves."

How common is Autism?
"An estimated 1 out of 54 boys and 1 in 252 girls are diagnosed with autism in the United States."

How do you treat Autism?
"Typically, different interventions and supports become appropriate as a child develops and acquires social and learning skills. As children with autism enter school, for example, they may benefit from targeted social skills training and specialised approaches to teaching."

When it comes to Autism each person is very different as we generally are as people we are all different. One treatment may not work for all people with Autism but it may work for one or for five it all depends on the person. To be honest i think that is all the information I can give regarding Autism, I do hope that I have given people the resources need to learn more about autism and I hope I have raised some awareness.
