This year, April 2, The International Autism Awareness Day, is celebrated for the 14th time.
On December 18, 2007, the United Nations General Assembly declared April 2 as a World Autism Awareness Day.
Autism is characterized by its unique social interactions, non-standard ways of learning, sharp interest in specific subjects, inclination to routines, and particular ways of processing information.
Scientists suggest that historical figures such as Mozart, Charles Darwin, Steve Jobs, Nikola Tesla, Albert Einstein, Thomas Jefferson, Isaac Newton, etc. belonged to the autistic spectrum.
