April is National Autism Awareness Month

Every April Autism Speaks celebrates World Autism Month, beginning with United Nations-sanctioned World Autism Awareness Day on April 2. Throughout the month, focus on sharing stories and providing opportunities to increase understanding and acceptance of people with autism.  In April 2021 Autism Speaks is inviting the community to #LightUpWithKindness.  The Light It Up Blue initiative was created by Autism Speaks in 2010. Since that time, joined by the international autism community, hundreds of thousands of landmarks, buildings, homes and communities around the world light blue on World Autism Awareness Day (April 2) in recognition of people with autism.
