Autism Awareness 2012

Today is Autism Awareness Day.  
People everywhere are wearing blue.


To raise awareness....

Did you know that 1 in 88 children are diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder?
Did you know that 1 in 54 boys are on the spectrum?
Did you know Autism is the fastest growing developmental disability?
(check out lots more facts here: I'm Just That Way)

Throughout the month of April, people all over are lighting it up blue to promote Autism Awareness.  If you buy a blue bulb from Home Depot, they will donate to Autism Speaks to raise awareness for Autism.

So what are you waiting for?
Go out there, get a blue bulb, and make a difference!
