World Autism Awareness Day

World Autism Awareness Day is on the 1st April and this means the  ‘Light it up blue’ campaign.

More than 500 structures and iconic buildings throughout the world, including the Sydney opera house, Federation Square Melbourne, the Storey Bridge Brisbane, the Empire State Building New York, Torre Agbar Spain, the Kingdom Tower Saudi Arabia will be lit up in bright blue lights.

Autism Awareness, an Australian agency, has a brand new website which is a fantastic resource for those looking for practical help and information on autism spectrum disorder.

This is what they have to say:

It is our nation’s most common developmental disorder, and more children are diagnosed with ASD than childhood AIDS, diabetes and cancer combined. No one knows the cause, there is no cure, but there is hope.

You can show your support by lighting your own blue light bulb at www.autismawareness.com.au

You could also light up your own house or place of work with blue lightbulbs!
