Today, April 2nd, we here at ESHC are “lighting up blue” in celebration of World Autism Day. The non-profit organization Autism Speaks started a global campaign encouraging people and places to light up the day blue to show pride and raise awareness.
In 2012, more than 3000 iconic buildings and landmarks in over 50 countries on six continents turned their lights blue in commemoration of World Autism Awareness.
With your help in 2013, we will shine a bright spotlight on the public health crisis of autism and improve the future for everyone who struggles with autism spectrum disorder. 1 in 88 children (and 1 in 54 boys) are affected by Autism.
Take time today to learn more about the signs of autism, and the current research that is being done to learn more about this disorder.
