National Autism Awareness Month represents an excellent opportunity to promote autism awareness, inclusion and self-determination for all, and assure that each person with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is provided the opportunity to achieve the highest possible quality of life. We want to get one step closer to a society where those with ASDs are truly valued for their unique talents and gifts.
How you can "Light It Up Blue": Wear Blue - ask family, friends and coworkers to wear blue this Sunday, April 2nd (t-shirts, ties, scarves); Post Blue - Help make autism trend on social media. While you're wearing blue, don't forget to take a selfie and post it using #LightItUpBlue to be a part of the global autism acceptance movement. Turn your profile photo blue and post autism facts with #LightItUpBlue in your posts.
