According to MochaAutismNetwork,
As the identity of Autism Spectrum became more recognizable, it became clear that if our children were to benefit from it, WE would have to stand and be noticed.We knew that we could no longer look outside for the more day to day questions and assistance sought. We were the ones we were waiting for.
Throughout the month I am going to be posting information and tidbits about autism so that we can all be more educated and knowledgeable about how Autism and early detection is crucial to the development of our children.
