World Autism Day

April 2nd was World Autism Day,  and it is estimated that up to 120,000 Australians are affected by Autism and around 10,000 of those are under 12. 

In recent years there has been a lot of progress made to promote the importance of early intervention.

Additional funding and resources for early intervention is incredibly important not just for the immediate family and the individual affected, but it is the right thing to do.

Around 110,000 people with Autism over 12 years of age haven’t all had the benefits of early intervention and they and their families are doing their best to cope with this lifelong and complex disability without that help or even ongoing support.  

Autism covers a diverse spectrum, some people can communicate while others have trouble with basic language skills. Yet others have trouble adapting to new situations, some show incredibly intellect and others don’t.

Autism is a lifelong disability, and people with Autism can learn and develop but are Australian governments providing that ongoing support and funding?   … Turn It Up.
