'World Autism Awareness Day' 2014

It's 'World Autism Awareness Day' today!

In Australia, you will see participation in 'Light It Up Blue' - a global campaign that sees thousands of iconic landmarks, cities and towns around the world turn blue on April 2 to recognise World Autism Awareness Day.

The campaign highlights the pressing need for greater public education and awareness of autism in our community.

This Australian organisation is proud to have initiated and hosted Australia’s participation in this campaign for the past three years and this year their aim is to see all of Australia go blue on April 2.

Do your bit by wearing blue today - it'll be a nod to those around you who you know love someone with autism.

Watch this.

And this:

What does this day mean to me? Just knowing that you know about it, and that you support me and my son… that's enough. That, and knowing that some days, it's bloody hard. No sympathy required. Just knowing that if you see someone in a supermarket having a meltdown, down assume, don't judge… just be understanding. THAT'S autism awareness for me. And for my son.
