My attitude towards Autism has changed in a positive way because I am now more aware of the conditions that people with Autism have. I am also more sensitive about the issue and I know the social impact of Autism in our community. Autism is a pressing issue that is rapidly expanding and now that I know the toll it takes on people’s lives, I realize how much it needs to be addressed.
The most challenging aspect of the project was narrowing down all of the information we acquired to a 10 minute presentation. Throughout the process of researching YAI, I learned so much more about Autism Spectrum Disorder than before the project started. It had been rewarding to hear the stories of those who had been helped by YAI, as it made me feel confident that it was an organization worth investing time and research in.
