Today is National Autism Awareness Day
Today is the day when we wear blue and try to educate and start the conversation by wearing blue and lighting up (insert state where you live).
In Perth the Autism Association of Western Australia will be lighting up Perth’s Bell Tower.
The reason for the lighting up and the whole point of Autism Awareness Day is to educate and communicate to the masses that we are valued people, who can make a real difference and contribute to society.
We come together along with other Autism associations/organisations to raise community recognition of the needs and accomplishments of children and adults with Autism.
It’s a time for us to embrace difference, raise awareness and acceptance of Autism.
So wear blue, be proud and remember the goal of Autism Awareness Week is to raise community recognition of the needs and accomplishments of children and adults with Autism.
By wearing blue, it not only keeps that conversation going about autism but, it also ensures that those with autism and their families don’t feel alone.
