Autism Awareness Day

April 2 marks World Autism Awareness Day (WAAD) that aims to put a spotlight on the hurdles that people with autism and others living with autism face every day.  As a growing global health issue owing to its increasing exposure in the press and common knowledge, autism is an issue that is only gaining more understanding and WAAD activities are planned every year to further increase and develop world knowledge of children and adults who have autism spectrum disorder (ASD).

What’s more, World Autism Awareness Day goes one step further to celebrate the unique talents of those with autism, while putting a huge focus on the warm embrace and welcome that these skills deserve through community events around the globe.

In demonstrating support, we are encouraging families and students to dress in blue and share your photos with Ms. Barone and Mr. Bianco or on twitter!
