Shine a Light on Autism for April, Autism Awareness Month | Events
April 2nd is World Autism Awareness Day and to celebrate, thousands of people are coming together to shine a light on autism. Join Autism Speaks Light It Up Blue initiative to show your support this April.
Autism awareness is more important than ever - autism prevalence has increased 123% since 2002 and continues to rise. This increase can only be partly explained by improved diagnosis and awareness. Light It Up Blue activities increase world knowledge of autism and impart information about the importance of early diagnosis and early intervention. Additionally, WAAD celebrates the unique talents and skills of individuals with autism around the globe.
