Did you know 1 in 88 children are affected by autism?
The Autism Speaks organization has started an annual campaign “Light It Up Blue” to help raise awareness on this growing public health concern. Today they encourage you to join in lighting up the day with blue by wearing the color, lighting your front porch or office. The organization has helped light up iconic landmarks around the world to show support.
Throughout the month speech program director Maryam Sadrzadeh will feature information about autism and the importance of communication intervention for individuals with the disorder here on our blog.
