April is Autism Awareness Month – RJ Scott’s Blog Hop

autismfact

Thank you Karrie Jax for the wonderful picture she made for me because just plain text would be boring. ūüôā

I became a part of RJ’s blog hop because I, too, know of people, both children and adults, with some form of Autism. ¬†It is a spectrum condition and for each individual person, it is different. ¬†I don’t like that it is sometimes called a “disease” because it is not. ¬†Not really. ¬†It is just something different that has happened to the brain. As long as you understand that they see the world differently, you can talk, play and work with them just fine. ¬†While I’m not autistic, I too, understand what it feels to be a little different as I am a shy, introverted person and large crowds tend to make me nervous in enclosed spaces.

I am giving away a $10 Gift Certificate to All Romance eBooks, Amazon, or B&N (winner’s choice). ¬†To enter, comment on this post if you have something you’ve struggled with,¬†you know someone with autism, or something similar. ¬†Contest will end at 11:59 pm EDT 4/15/2014 and a randomly chosen commentator (random.org) will win within the next day. ¬†Please leave your email so you can be contacted.

Contest is closed:

Please congratulate H.B. who is my winner of the Autism Blog Hop contest for a $10 gift certficate to ARe!
