The one thing that I’ve noticed about autism awareness is that it seen as voluntary. The time has arrived for us to demand autism educational lessons, from the early years of elementary school up until the end of high school. Why shouldn’t this be an issue that is known through and through? Autism Awareness Month just scratches the surface of an issue that is extremely too deep to not explore. In order for those with autism to receive the support and understanding that they need, we must first possess the insight to what it’s really like to be with autism, whether it’s the parents and family or individual themselves. Even in reference to my survey on this issue, a majority of those who took the survey knew when Autism Awareness Month was, however, there were still some that were way off.
