Autism Awareness

Autism Awareness
Mary Lou Padilla

John Kelley Elementary School students and staff wore blue to show their support for Autism Awareness. The theme was, “My School Lights It Up Blue for Autism Awareness!”
Nearly a quarter century ago, the Autism Society launched a nationwide effort to promote autism awareness, inclusion and self-determination for all, and assure that each person with ASD is provided the opportunity to achieve the highest possible quality of life. This year we want to go beyond simply promoting autism awareness to encouraging friends and collaborators to become partners in movement toward acceptance and appreciation.
