Autism Awareness Month

I'm really excited to be invited to participate in this locally...I hope this April's Autism Awareness month is a huge success!

The Autism File Campaign. Get involved!

Due to the huge impact the front cover of the forthcoming April issue
is receiving, mothers have contacted us to say they want to get

Mothers are already getting together in groups of 6 and emulating our
campaign shot and You Tube clip in their own style. Mothers around
the world of all different shapes, colour and size are demonstrating
how autism mothers are strong and 'Delivering where governments have

Striking the same pose with the same headlines makes mothers of
autism a powerful force as we unite around the world. This is not
about expensive cameras, photographers and make up artists, it's
about us, the mothers showing our strength. So, grab a camera and 5
other mums and have some fun!

'The campaign is about strength, not weakness, it's about demanding
support not hoping for it and it's about how we, the parents are
having to deliver where our governments have failed'

Please You Tube any clips and send us your photograph. We will
feature these images on the website and in the July issue of The
Autism File and at the Autism One Conference in May.

Above all, have fun and some time with friends!
