April is World Autism Month!

Light it Up Blue

This World Autism Month, it's time to light up with kindness! 

Every April we celebrate World Autism Month. Throughout the month, focus on sharing stories and providing opportunities to increase understanding and acceptance of people with autism. There is power in kindness and one small act can have a ripple effect to foster kindness in our communities. We believe that kindness can help create a world where all people can reach their full potential.

This year, lets commit to keeping the spirit of the month alive, as now more than ever we know the autism community needs support, kindness and compassion.

In April 2021, please encourage your community to #LightUpWithKindness.

Below is a link with questions and answers about Autism and how you can spread awareness by leading with kindness!
