What difference does autism awareness really make? It can help child directly by informing those around an autistic child of his/her special needs, showing people that autism is more than just a statistic, while also helping to keep the spotlight on autism, benefiting research and support services.

I (female) would love to have a tie and suspenders of the multi colored key fobs. I have been thinking lot lately about autism and why it is in the rise. More and more children are being diagnosed. It seems to be taking place and/or adding to the number of children with ADHD. Are we looking at the wrong drugs/medicines??? Are we blaming it on government required immunizations when we should be blaming another form of medication??? What about the birth control pill???? Could it be that the pill is causing some form of DNA malfunction???? We keep hearing about the harmful effects of the pill on the woman- heart attack, strokes, blood clots but what is it doing to the woman’s body as a whole? The “new and improved” pills cannot be as benign as we are lead to believe.

FiveHumans (www.fivehumans/autism) also sells a fashionable, unique autism shirt for men, women and children. It informs and helps create conversation. They donate 10% of the sales price to Autism Speaks.

Autism Speaks is not autism advocacy. Autism Speaks would prefer genocide over true autistic advocacy. How about shirts designed *by* autistic people, such as http://www.cafepress/autieliberation ?

This is how my son promotes autism awareness, (this is his race shirt, he runs roadraces almost every weekend). Not quite the same kind of autism awareness most of the sites you link to promote.

Canadian singer/songwriter/composer Elyse bruce has an album available for purchase online called "Countdown to Midnight." Proceeds from the sale of that album go to autism charity, and more proceeds pay for the production of the Midnight In Chicago Autism Spectrum Podcasts, which are linked to by autism authorities the world over. The podcasts on autism are available at www.mic.mypodcast.
