Don’t you just love how each month gives you something new to celebrate, learn about, support or advocate? Months can have many different meanings, such as birthdays, anniversaries, when rent is due…but for many each month is a reminder of very important causes.
South Coast Nanny, LLC was established on the basic principles of caring and sharing. We view each month as an opportunity for sharing, advocating and bringing awareness of important issues that not only affect our every day life, but our community, our nation and our world as a whole. So many of you already knew or were informed that April is National Autism Awareness Month. And April 2nd was World Autism Day. These annual events serve to educate us about special issues within the special needs community and we feel it’s important to highlight them as they come along.
According to the Autism Society, Did you know that 1 out of 110 American children are on the autism spectrum? That’s a big number. This might not be as alarming to you if you have a child with special needs or know of a close friend or neighbor who does. It’s more common than we think. If you would like to learn more about Autism, for more information or to find events in your neighborhood here are a few sites you can visit: autism-society.org or lightitupblue.org.
