Autism Awareness Day
Tue, 02 Apr 2013 13:34:53 GMT — April 2nd is Autism Awareness Day across the U.S. and it's estimated that as many as 1 in 88 school aged children will be diagnosed with the disorder. With numbers so high, it's important for parents to get a better understanding of what this is. Roschel Servantes with the Easter Seals explains the signs and symptoms for you to be aware of. Easter Seals offer a free screening for families at makethefirst5count.org and it will give you a better picture of what your child should be doing. The Center for Disease Control says 1 in 54 boys will have Autism and knowing the signs to detect early is the best solution for any parent. A few signs of Autism could be when your child previously used to speak a few words and suddenly stop talking, no eye contact and trouble relating to parents or friends.
