Today is World Autism Day, a day where people with autism, aspergers and similar diagnoses get attention all over the world. The spotlight is on these people all over the planet. This attention is needed, as people with autism are often becoming misunderstood by instutions like schools, hospitals, dentists, governments. An autistic person does not know how to handle most social situations, as they think differently from everyone else. They often get frustrated by this, and do not understand what to do when these situations comes up. A close relative of mine has this diagnosis, and it is uncertain that if he will ever be able to take care of himself. In order to help him, and others like him, please support this day. You can do this in different ways, like buying a pin to put on your coat, support the autism organisations out there, or just simply spread the information about autism and this day.
