Every year, autism organizations around the world celebrated Autism Awareness Day with unique fundraising and awareness-raising events. Spreading autism awareness in schools is a great way to promote inclusion and acceptance in the classroom and beyond and assure that each person with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) is provided the opportunity to achieve the highest possible quality of life. This work can be expanded to focus on everyone’s needs – ensuring acceptance and inclusion in schools and communities that results in true appreciation of the unique aspects of all people. The goal is to get one step closer to a society where those with ASDs are truly valued for their individual talents and gifts. Children affected by autism often have challenges that can be worsened by ingredients such as dyes in food and medicine. Customized medications can help.
