This is today's hashtag on twitter. What will you do today, on this extra day we get this year, to make a difference? We've lots of ideas over on Our Face Book page some little, some big, but all of which will make a difference to raising awareness of Autism across the land.
Much of the time, it's not easy when one or several of your family needs help with their ASD's.
