Show Your Support for Autism Awareness

As autism research uncovers more and more information on the disorder many people are coming forward with their own stories and show of support. Throughout the last few years there have been television specials, public service announcements, books, and news and magazine articles all in support of autism awareness. The disorder has even gained attention through celebrity voices, like actress Jenny McCarthy who wrote a book about being the mother of an autistic child. As a result of this increase in interest there is now a market for autism products.  

Years prior to now there were very few sites that offered anything related to autism now there are hundreds offering support, autism products and general information on the disorder. There are even sites that sell products like jewelry, stickers, and t-shirts to showcase autism awareness support. Many of these sites donate a portion of the proceeds to autism research.

The interest in autism almost seemed to happen overnight, on one hand this influx is great because it promotes awareness and increases funding for research but it also opens people up to scams and false diagnosis. It is important to remember that autism is a still a disorder, it is not a fad. Proper diagnosis and treatment is important to understanding and living with autism.

There is not a cure for autism but there are many health resources available for those coping with autism. Whether it is an individual or the family of the individual with autism, support can be found for everyone, and support is very important as autism can be extremely confusing and stressful for everyone involved, not just the diagnosed individual.

Doctors and specialists on autism can help parents of autistic children with finding products that may be beneficial. They can also provide information on autism support groups and events. However, it is still important to do your own research if you are assisting someone with autism. There are often new discoveries about the disorder and being aware of new developments is important.

In conclusion, as more people become aware and educated on autism spectrum disorder new products and information is becoming readily available. Yet with this wide exposure come people looking to cash in on the desperation of those who are stressed. It is important for this living with autism to stay up today on products and information in order to avoid wasting money or falling victim to false information.
