The Many Faces of Autism – Autism Awareness Month at the Cafe

30 Days of Autism Awareness Month Challenge Begins at the Cafe

Autism Awareness Month

Autism Awareness … 30 Days of Autism … these are meant to be what? Catchphrases to help us understand the world of autism a bit better? A way to help raise funding for autism research? A chance to pin blue ribbons or puzzled ribbons around and tell the world how much they need to be aware of Autism?

Or maybe, it’s about something a little more.

I think that’s it.

I think it’s about more than ribbons, or blue-colored lightbulbs (thought they do look cool).

I think it’s about more than any one organization, one blog, one writer, one mom, one person or entity. Because there is a bigger stake here than whether or not you know what autism is, whether you care, and whether you want to spread the word.
