April is Autism Awareness Month

My little brother, who is now 17 and now so little anymore, has high functioning autism. Ignorant people in this world try to say autism is just in our heads and we make it up to explain why our children are "stupid and lazy". SPREAD AWARENESS NOT IGNORANCE!! Autism is real and it effects real children who need our help. My brother is highly intelligent and struggling to get through high school because his teachers don't understand him. They aren't ignoring you and they don't know what they are saying is rude. They are not stupid or lazy or crazy, they are AUTISTIC! It is its own diagnosis, its own explaination for their behavior. Spread the word! It is real and it is not going anywhere! We need to accept it and help these children. PLEASE educate those around you who don't know what it is. And when you meet someone like Dennis Leary, who has his head so far up his own ass that he can't see what is plain as day all around him or he is just so stupid he can't understand it, send them my way. I'll lock them in a room alone with an autistic child stimming who is on the edge of a meltdown and see if they still think these kids are just "lazy and stupid".
