April 2nd is World Autism Awareness Day - How can you help?
Autism does not discriminate. It affects people of all nations, but some people with autism suffer terrible discrimination, abuse and isolation. Autism is a complex disorder, though we can see improvements with the right treatments. That is why it is so important to raise awareness to better meet the needs of people with autism. April 2nd is World Autism Day and begins Autism Awareness Month. Please educate yourself and others on the importance of raising awareness, funds and compassion for this spectrum disorder. Both children and parents could use the support.
April 2nd is World Autism Day and begins Autism Awareness Month. Autism Speaks is the nation's largest autism science and advocacy organization. It is their “Light it up Blue” that helps us honor this day worldwide and launch the Autism Awareness Month campaign. With the "Light It Up Blue" campaign, major buildings in the USA and Worldwide use blue lighting in support of World Autism Awareness Day and to raise awareness of Autism. Your community can do the same on April 2nd and throughout the month.
