April is Autism Awareness Month. Some people are totally on board with a month devoted to awareness. Others, not so much, thinking it’s unnecessary. “Who isn’t aware that autism exists?” some may ask.
Well, “knowing it exists” is a very superficial definition of autism awareness. A month like this should go much deeper; this is especially the case because a lot of people know of autism, but few people knowabout it. And that has some serious consequences for the one in 68 who are affected.
