Autism Awareness Month

Today kicks off the start of Autism Awareness Month. We will be wearing a lot of blue this month!
Tomorrow is Light It up Blue day to raise awareness of Autism. 1 in 110 children are diagnosed with Autism


On the evenings of April 1 and 2, 2011, prominent buildings across North America and the world — including the Empire State Building in New York City and the CN Tower in Toronto, Canada — will turn their lights blue to raise awareness for autism and to commemorate World Autism Awareness Day on Saturday, April 2.

We’re aiming to light the world blue all throughout April — city by city, town by town — by taking action to raise autism awareness in our communities.

What you can do to Light It Up Blue

  • Wear blue clothing or your Autism Speaks puzzle piece, and encourage your coworkers to do the same. Sign Up
  • Light your house up blue by putting blue light bulbs in any outdoor fixtures. Sign Up
  • Raise awareness for Autism online or spread the word about Light It Up Blue.
