World Autism Awareness Month

On April 2nd, people around the globe unite to celebrate the annual World Autism Awareness Day, now its 12th year. On this day and throughout all of April, hundreds of thousands of diverse backgrounds connect over a common goal: to increase understanding, acceptance and support of those living with autism. This effort is demonstrated through many symbolic displays, such as wearing blue clothing, shining blue lights on landmarks, and other creative applications of the colour. Other initiatives include story sharing, social media campaigns, community events, fundraisers and educational programs. We are proud to be a part of this international community.
