I support any move to uplift the lives of women and children, teach people more about autism, movements on having a safer, peaceful, clean and healthy planet and access to education for all. I also support the move to an educated and practical approach on reproductive health and promoting my beautiful country (the Philippines). I am for the call to end poverty.
Why do I blog about Autism?
It’s because I’m a parent of a child with autism.
One in every 150 child is diagnosed with autism and every 20 minutes there is a child diagnosed with autism. But this was the statistics two years ago, now there is 1:69 and the number is growing. Out of 10 children with autism only one is likely to be female. My daughter is one of the uncommon cases.
I got those knowing looks and rude judgment on how my daughter got autism but none of them were right.
April 2 is World Autism Awareness Day as proclaimed by UN in December 2007. April is also the Autism Awareness Month. I dedicate a lot of space here in my blog to spread the word about autism. Autism can affect anyone regardless of race, religion, socio-economic status or geography.
I hope all my posts helps.
I also made a separate blog about autism Surviving Autism:
