World Autism Awareness Day


World Autism Awareness Day


The fifth annual World Autism Awareness Day is April 2, 2012. Every year, autism organizations around the world celebrate the day with unique fundraising and awareness-raising events.

Thank you for celebrating the wonderful people in our lives affected by autism on April 2 and throughout April which was Autism Awareness Month. Learn more about some of the events from April 2, 2012 here!


There are a few songs that have been written regarding autism, and would like to share a couple here:

"Solitary Shell" by Dream Theater (from Six Degrees of Inner Turbulence, 2002)

 
 
 He learned to walk and talk on time
But never cared much to be held
and steadily he would decline
Into his solitary shell

 "Puzzle Box" by Red Lamb (from Red Lamb, 2011)

 
 
 Every child’s mind is…
Like a puzzle box
But what of the mind that stays…
That stays forever locked?
Early intervention’s
The key to it all
Now we lift them up
HE won’t let them fall
 
Read all the Lyrics here
 


Here is an interview with Dan and Candi Spitz about their autistic twin sons and 
using Red Lamb's song "Puzzle Box" to increase Autism awareness:
