Do you know April is Autism awareness month? What is Autism you ask?
Autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and autism are both general terms for a group of complex disorders of brain development. These disorders are characterized, in varying degrees, by difficulties in social interaction, verbal and nonverbal communication and repetitive behaviors. They include autistic disorder, Rett syndrome, childhood disintegrative disorder, pervasive developmental disorder-not otherwise specified (PDD-NOS) and Asperger syndrome. Read more at Autism Speaks.
1 in 88 children and 1 in 54 boys are diagnosed with autism. I have a close friend whose son is autistic and I created a few jewelry pieces to show support!
Check these out at ChariT's Inspirational Creations.
I also searched on Etsy for a bit and found some other beautiful handmade autism goodies! Here are a few!
