via www.worldautismawarenessday.org

Today, April 2, is World Autism Awareness Day. Please take a moment to look at the official Website, and learn about Autism. There are many ways to get involved, if you are interested, starting from becoming a fan on Facebook!

I am supporting "Voicd4u", iPhone/iPod Touch application for autistic people, provided by a small start-up that my friend runs. It is a simple graphic communication tool, with attentions to the details to fit to the needs of autistic kids and people. If you know anyone who may benefit from this tool, please take a look a their Website.  My friend who started this company is actually a mother of an autistic son, and she came up with the idea of the real-life needs.  She spent a lot of time incorporating the idea of the specialist and professional caregivers to make this application, so it is easy to use and attractive even for young people.
