World Autism Awareness Day

Today is World Autism Awareness Day.

According to Wikipedia, Autism is a disorder in the neural development, characterized by impaired social interaction and communication, and by restricted and repetitive behavior. These signs all begin before a child is three years old. As parents, it is important that we play close attention to our children and see if they show these symptoms so that we can provide early intervention and provide aid to the child to develop independence along the way.
In celebration of this day, Mommy Talks will feature moms with children with autism this month.
