As most of you know April is Autism Awareness Month. To help spread the word about Autism we are hosting a giveaway hop.

Each participating blog is hosting a giveaway. You will find lots of variety among the prizes. Some of the blogs are giving away prizes that relate to autism, other blogs are giving away gift cards or other prizes and posting information about autism to help make others aware.

I know the causes and treatment of autism can bring controversy. The point of this giveaway hop is simply to make people more aware about the subject by sharing information and experiences.

For More Information about Austism:

I am giving away a $10 e-Gift Card to Amazon or a book of choice from the Book Depository up to $10.

Please fill out the form to enter!
Please read the Giveaway Policy before you enter.
Open WW Ends 4/17
Good Luck!

    People and children with autism are viable members of society!

  2. I don’t know much about autism but ZI know there are some with this disorder who are genius’ in some respects and have many talents

  3. Laura Jacobson says:

    My sister has a little boy who is 10 years old with low functioning autism. He needs 24 hour supervision and has to be fed thru feeding tubes as he does not like textures and will not eat. he was not diagnosed with autism until he was about 3 years old.

  4. I’ve read that it’s more common in boys

  5. I used to work for a non-profit organization that cared for many different types of clients, some of which were autistic. We had programs developed for them to help them with immediate and long-term goals. And when they achieved those goals, we celebrated! I don’t know that anyone who has not dealt with an autistic person (depending on severity), knows how challenging in can be for both parties. So, when they get something correct, it is a great accomplishment! I think this a fantastic blog hop!

  6. Jennifer H. says:

    my husband has aspergers which is on the autism spectrum

    My former boss had a son with Autism. He is a very sweet kid but I could see the frustration on her face most days. I just love his energy and his innocence. Hes a really good kid!

  8. I learned boys are more likely to have it.

  9. Thank you for the amazing giveaway! One of my friend’s brothers has autism, but he’s one of the sweetest people I know.

    I know that it is most common in boys but many people with autism have genius like intellects.

  11. Heather eg Kaufman says:

    I have a nephew with autism & another nephew with Aspergers. They are both high functioning, but there are still ignorant comments all the time.

  12. Cynthia C says:

    I worked with a few autistic children in my career as a teacher. They taught me a lot and I hope I taught them some things as well.

  13. I’ve learned that it tends to emerge between 2 and 3 years of age.

  14. Barbara Montag says:

    Something I learned – that so many people had it.

  16. Samantha says:

    I participated in an autism program in college and hung out with an autistic child and it really was a life changing experience. They are humans just like us and I wish everyone could be in that program to learn also.

  17. I learned that only 0.6% of the NIH’s budget goes toward autism research, despite the fact that it’s one of the most prevalent disorders.

  18. Erica C. says:

    I learned that 1 in 88 American children fall on the spectrum.

  19. I learned that it is actually diagnosed more among the higher socio-economic classses

  20. My daughter has Autism and from experience, when you’ve met one child with Autism, you’ve only met one child with Autism because all children exhibit different signs. Also 1 in 88 children have it.
