Generous Gems offers several lines of autism awareness ribbon jewelry in gold and silver. A beautiful way to show support and raise awareness about autism.
Information on autism is changing, regularly. When we began designing autism awareness jewelry, this was how autism was described… and still is today. “The word autism covers a scope of complex developmental disabilities that typically appear during the first two years of life and are the result of a neurological disorder that affects the functioning of the brain, impacting development in the areas of social interaction and communication skills. Both children and adults on the autism spectrum typically show difficulties in verbal and non-verbal communication, social interactions, and leisure or play activities.”
There are many groups and organizations spreading awareness. Education will not cure autism, but it will help us understand how to cope and care for each other better. This April we encourage all to “Light it up Blue” for autism and all year…. spread awareness, educate yourself and others. Empathy and compassion, along with education, make strides in understanding this condition.
