Autism Awareness Hop Giveaway

Posted April 11, 2012 by pageturn in Uncategorized / 94 Comments

April is Autism Awareness Month. To help spread the word about Autism we are hosting a giveaway hop.

We will be giving away a pre-ordered copy of From What I Remember... by Stacy Kramer & Valerie Thomas. I choose this book, because there is a minor character on the spectrum – and although his part is small, his character is very pivotal to the development and growth of other characters.

 This hop is being hosted by:

The CDC recently announced a 23% jump in the diagnosis rate of Autism from just a years ago; it is now 1 in 88 or 1 in 54 in boys. 

Quoted from a Boston.com article

Typically characterized by verbal delays, repetitive behaviors, and social struggles, autism is five times more common among boys than girls — with 1 in 54 boys identified, according to the new study. It is also found more commonly in white children than black and Hispanic children. Previous reports have shown that autism is one of the few developmental disabilities in which children from higher socio-economic backgrounds are more likely to be identified.

 For More Information about Autism:

They are also changing the “definition” of autism. You can read more on 
that info here.

GIVEAWAY INFO
Just leave us a comment, include your email and we will pick a winner on June 17th.  Since this is a pre-order and I will be ordering from The Book Depository it is open internationally. 

HUGE THANK YOU to anyone who participates in this giveaway. The more info out there, the easier it is for my son and kids like him to do normal everyday things.

  2. It's so wonderful to see so many blogs involved in spreading awareness. I too have a son on the spectrum. Thanks for this giveaway. As a book blogger I am interested in how the character on the spectrum is represented. Thanks again.

  4. Thanks for helping to sponsor this blog hop. I worked for several years as a speech therapist with primarily nonverbal autistic preschoolers. What a challenge but the rewards made it all worth it!

    Thanks for the giveaway, I'm going to be a special education teacher and autism is what sparked my interest in the first place.

  7. Thank you for the giveaway and for participating in this wonderful cause. My oldest grandson has aspergers and it's been a learning experience for all of us. He will be 9 in a couple of weeks.

  8. Thanks for the chance to read this great sounding book! :) My special education professor said the only reason they're changing the definition of autism is to reduce the number of students who are classified on the ASD spectrum. The other students who are high-functioning or that don't fit in the new definition won't receive services anymore. I think that's a little ridiculous. :/ Anyways, my email is allicat0818[at]yahoo[dot]com
