Autism Awareness Giveaway Hop

Welcome to the Autism Awareness Giveaway Hop

April is Autism Awareness month. And I couldn’t pass up being a part of this giveaway hop. For those who don’t know I work with adults with disabilities. The agency I work at serves people with all development disabilities, but we mostly have autistic clients. There are disabilities, such as Angelman Syndrome, which has recently been tacked onto the Autism Spectrum. One of the most interested things about Autism, is that you can have 50 people with it, and none of them are the same. Hence, the puzzle piece ribbon.

Did you know that 1 in 110 kids are affected by autism?
Did you know only 1 out of 4 are girls?
To learn more about Autism visit Autism Speaks.

Since I’m a YA book blog, I’ll be giving away a book, winners choice of three, in which the main character has Aspergers. I'll also be giving away cards made by clients at the agency where I work. 

Wild Orchid by Beverley Brenna
Marcelo in the Real World by Francisco Stork

No need to enter me. I just wanted to say I really admire the work you do. That must be so difficult and challenging. I didn't realize that fact about the puzzle ribbon and the reason behind it.
