April is Autism Awareness month. As a teacher, I come across many children on the spectrum. I have a close family member who is diagnosed with Aspergers. We hear of this condition more and more in our lives. Becoming aware is essential in finding a way to help those who are diagnosed, and to prevent Autism in the future. One of my favorite companies, The HopeFULL Company has worked on raising awareness while delivering healthy nutrition.
My past students have also worked hard to raise awareness. The following video made me so proud: the song is written by a former student and sung by children from my school, including children with Autism. Light it Up Blue is a tribute to those who created it and to those who is is meant to help!
