World Autism Awareness Day

Dear Friends, 
Yesterday was World Autism Awareness Day!! It is such an important issue!! I have tutored students for years that have struggled with ASD(Autism Spectrum Disorder) issues as well as dealt with ASD within our family.  
The numbers are staggering who this issue affects. Please pray for understanding and a cure. This is such a difficult issue…not only for the child but for the family. I am so encouraged by the sheer genius of my students…but with these great blessings also comes many struggles.
AutismSpeaks.org is a great group!! Please consider if you can lend a hand.
Let us all take a stand and also stand in prayer. Shine your blue light in support!! 🙂

April 2nd is World Autism Awareness Day.  There’s a load of awareness programs and fundraisers happening around the world.  A lot of buildings are also celebrating the day by lighting up blue in honor of Autism Speaks.  The group says the developmental disability affects 1 in every 88 children.  It also has no medical detection or cure.
