Tomorrow is World Autism Awareness Day, and people are encouraged to “light it up blue” to shine a light on autism. We’ll be joining in, with blue lights on the front and back of our home:
“Light it blue” doesn’t have to be for just one day, however. The whole month of April is set aside for Autism Awareness, but it doesn’t even stop there. With the CDC now reporting that as many as 1 in 68 children are diagnosed with autism, we all need to be aware, not just on April 2, or even throughout the month of April, but everyday. Take some time to learn about what autism is and what it isn’t, and maybe we can dispel myths, and show a little extra compassion!
