Shine A Light On Autism

Shine A Light On Autism

April is Autism Awareness Month!  We all need to be educated and aware of Autism. 

The eighth annual World Autism Awareness Day is April 2, 2015. Every year, autism organizations around the world celebrate the day with unique fundraising and awareness-raising events.

How did you celebrate this month? 

President Barack Obama issued a White House proclamation recognizing World Autism Awareness Day declaring that “everyone deserves a fair shot at opportunity” and celebrating the work of “advocates, professionals, family members, and all who work to build brighter tomorrows alongside those with autism.”

ASD is a developmental disability that can cause major social, communication, and behavioral challenges. Signs of ASD begin during early childhood and usually last throughout a person's life. The cause of most cases of ASD is unknown, and there is currently no cure. CDC's most recent surveillance data indicate that about one in 68 children has been identified with ASD , which represents an almost 30% increase since the previous estimate in 2012. However, there remains an urgent need to continue research into causes of and effective interventions for ASD and help children living with ASD to achieve their potential.

Autism Awareness Month is a time to educate your community about autism and Light It Up Blue! Spreading autism awareness in schools and communities is a great way to celebrate April.
