International Autism Awareness Day

Today is World Autism Awareness Day. Every day is autism awareness day in our home as my daughter has Asperger's Syndrome. She is a wonderfully talented and outgoing person with a big heart. She attends mainstream high school and is exploring options for a career after she completes school. She loves anime, here's a sample of her art!
Happy Autism Day Gen- you make us very proud!

CNN has wonderful day long coverage on Autism- as 1 in 150 children are diagnosed within the spectrum, it's something everyone should learn about.
