April Autism Awareness Month Murals

APRIL is Autism Awareness Month and I wanted to add something to make people notice, and maybe think about it alittle more. Many people are unaware of the increase of autism. I read something the other day that really made me wonder..."If you caused a 6,000% increase in Autism...wouldn't you try to cover it up too?" When I heard my grandson had affect 1 in 100. He a young teen now, but it now affects 1 in 120. Unless you live in some areas where it is 1 in 20. I don't think my murals solve anything but it seems nothing else had either.
