World Autism Awareness Day

On December 18, 2007, the United Nations General Assembly adopted resolution 62/139… which declares April 2 as World Autism Awareness Day (WAAD) in perpetuity.

News last month about oxytocin helping autism patients’ socialization was quite intriguing. I hope research continues and helps as many as possible. Something so basic as a naturally produced hormone makes me wonder if early intervention could perhaps help? Oxytocin normally is produced through social contact. There are many reasons why someone might not produce enough.

Apparently the big thing this year is to wear blue? Okay. I’ll wear blue.
