Autism Ribbon

It seems that everybody has a cause of some sort or another.  Many people display their support for these particular causes in a variety of different ways.  Some make contributions to organizations that are working to find a cure while others do things in order to raise the awareness of these particular diseases.  One disease that many people have an interest in and that has touched many different lives is autism.  One of the best ways for you to show your support and to raise the awareness of this particular disease is by displaying an autism ribbon.

Autism is a disease that affects almost 1 out of every 150 people.  It is a childhood disease that sticks with an individual throughout their lifetime and makes it difficult for them to be able to fit into society. There are many different ideas of what causes autism in these individuals and why it would be on the rise at this particular time.  We know that autism is caused by hereditary means and also may be caused through chemicals that are indicative of birth defects.  Something that many people are considering now is that the disease is caused as a result of vaccinations that are given to children.  At this particular time, there is no scientific corroboration of this particular theory.

The autism ribbon is a simple way that you can help to raise the awareness of this particular disease.  And just like any other ribbon, it is a U shape that crosses in the middle and has its own unique color.  This particular ribbon is red blue and yellow and is in the shape of puzzle pieces all across the ribbon.  Some of the ribbons also display the words autism awareness on them.  You can wear these ribbons as pins on your clothes, decals on your shirt and even display them on your bumpers.

As more and more people are affected by this terrible disease, additional support will be necessary, not only for the individuals with autism but also for family members they care for them.  Show your support for everyone involved by displaying your own autism ribbon proudly.

Autism Fact #1

Because of the special way autistic minds function, normal teaching methods don't work. Understanding how the autistic mind functions, allows you to take advantage of this functionality to provide specialized teaching that will help young autistic minds learn much more rapidly than they could with standard teaching methods.

Autism Fact #2

The autistic mind tends to function in a visual manner. Specialized teaching for autism makes heavy use of pictures. Using words to describe something is nearly useless. Providing pictures of what you are describing is much more successful. Even better though is taking the child to see the actual item or place being described.

Autism Fact #3

Take advantage of the natural skills an autistic child may have, instead of focusing on weaker points. It is interesting to note that although autistic children tend to be visual and are often very good at drawing, they can also be very good with music. Take advantage of this by creatively using music and art as part of teaching other topics.
