Don’t Forget…April is Autism Awareness Month

Light It Up Blue Autism SpeaksApril is National Autism Awareness Month and there are tons of events, conferences and fundraisers occurring across the country. To kick of the month, Autism Speaks is raising awareness through their Light It Up Blue campaign. On the evenings of April 1 and 2, prominent buildings across North America and the world — including the Empire State Building in New York City and the CN Tower in Toronto, Canada — will turn their lights blue to raise awareness for autism and to commemorate World Autism Awareness Day on Saturday, April 2. You can wear something blue, use a blue light or wear a puzzle piece to commemorate the day and raise awareness. Click here for a long list of events taking place around the world.

Are you planning on participating in any events for Autism Awareness Month? We’d love to hear about events in your city or town.

Make sure to check back with us on April 1 for Different Roads to Learning’s kick-off to Autism Awareness Month.

About Different Roads to Learning

Our Difflearn blog was created specifically for sharing. Here, we’ll collaborate with trusted professionals and parents to share experiences, concerns, new and exciting products and events and best of all, our collective treasure of information. It is our hope that you will find the information posted here helpful, practical, and interesting and that it will help all of us – especially our children – learn and grow. And this is just the beginning…We hope that professionals and parents who have advice, information or a story to share will contact us and submit thoughts and ideas for blog posts. We intend for this to be a true community and all who are interested in the education of our ASD children are invited to participate.
