Today, April 2nd is Autism Awareness day! All over the world, people are 'lighting it up blue' to shine a light on autism. According to lightitupblue.org, 1 in 88 children in the USA is on the autism spectrum, and it is a 1000 percent increase in the past 40 years. For the month of April, places like the Empire State Building, The Sydney Opera House, and Niagara Falls are turning their lights blue to help spread the word. I have worked with children and adults on the spectrum for over 5 years, and currently finishing up my master's in behavior analysis, so this is a cause near and dear to me. Check out autismspeaks.org and lightitupblue.org for more information.
