...was celebrated on April 2, 2008 after the United Nations Assembly voted on Nov 2007 to establish this day. April is also Autism Awareness Month.
Observing the Autism Awareness Month I would like to leave you with this question?

Thanks for the info OP.
Question, is Autism more prevalent now than say, 20 years ago? And is Autism on the rise globally, or just in North America?

"ASD is the fastest growing neurobiological condition in the world. With prevalence numbers rising exponentially over the last six decades, more and more families are living with ASD than ever before. In the United States, one in every 150 American children will have ASD, and it is estimated that figure is one in every 90 boys. Western Europe and Canada carry similar, if not higher numbers, and Latin America, Asia, the Middle East and Africa also face challenges due to their rising numbers and the increasing obstacles to accessing care."
