Lucid Group Support Autism Awareness Day

Annually, 2 April is Autism Awareness Day. Being autistic does not mean you have an illness or disease; it means your brain works in a different way from other people. Autism manifests itself as a spectrum, which means that everybody with autism is different. Some will need little or no support, while others may need full-time care. Some autistic people have average or way-above-average intelligence while others may have a learning disability. Autism is not a medical condition synonymous with treatments or a ‘cure’ – indeed, many people do not want a cure and embrace their differences; others learn to manage their challenges or use techniques to cope with scenarios they find difficult.

Approximately 1 in 10 people with autism show extraordinary abilities in a particular field: it could be playing a musical instrument or memorising vast amounts of knowledge. A person with autism could be a leading expert on nuclear physics but struggle to cope with a change in their daily routine or concentrate in a meeting if there is a ticking clock in the room.

There is generally a lack of understanding and perception about autism, what it is and the impact it has on individuals and their families and carers. For that reason, it is important to raise awareness.

This week and the whole month of April are marked as World Autism Awareness Week and Month and we’ll be sharing a family testimonial later in the month to help spread kindness and autism awareness.

The National Autistic Society (UK) provides support to the 700,000 autistic people in the UK and their families. Be it running specialist schools, campaigning for improved rights or training companies on being more autism-friendly, they are dedicated to transforming lives and changing attitudes. You can find a link to its website here.
