Autism is a complex neurological disorder that affects communication, social interaction, and behavior. Autism affects individuals in different ways and to varying degrees, which is why it is referred to as a spectrum disorder. Spectrum is a word used to classify something or suggest it can be classified in terms of a scale, a range, or opposite points. A spectrum is also defined as a band of colors of varying degrees of refraction according to wavelength. A rainbow for example. This is perhaps how a rainbow of colors began to be used to symbolize autism spectrum disorder.
There are many reasons to head to the zoo today.
A day of acceptance is a great and powerful reason on it’s own. 🌈
