Today's Reason to Celebrate

World Autism Awareness Day

On World Autism Awareness Day, autism organizations around the world celebrate with unique, powerful fundraising and awareness events. Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a complex developmental disability with symptoms first appearing during early childhood. It can affect a person's ability to communicate and interact with others.

Did you know that an estimated 1 in 68 babies born in the United States will have some form of autism? There's no better time to get involved with awareness campaigns in your community and beyond. 

One such campaign is Light It Up Blue, which encourages people to do things from wearing blue to lighting up your whole office or school blue. Show your support for the global autism community by using the hashtag #LIUB to share your experiences, support, and thoughts.
