World Autism Awareness Day on April 2

Dear Diary:

Autism Spectum Disorder is a condition present in childhood but diagnosis can easily be missed.  Children have difficulty communicating and forming relationships with others.  Sometimes autism is not understood by society and having an awareness day educates people.

Jig-saw puzzle pieces often are used as a logo for autism.  This could be because autism is puzzling and there are many factions to the disorder.  It is believed that autism can be a genetic problem but other scientists say heredity should also be considered.  If a child is diagnosed early enough, behavioural programs can provide confidence to achieve a productive life.

Several prominent people were autistic, including Mozart, Charles Darwin, and Einstein.  All exhibited signs of autistic behaviour but all went on to be well known, with hugely successful lives.

There are several groups in Second Life that are supportive of autism.  I visited Club Accessible this morning.  Everyone was very friendly.  Fly out for a dance, a cup of coffee or just to talk.  You'll enjoy your time there.
