Spreading Autism Awareness in April

April is Autism Awareness Month. Through education and awareness of this neurological disorder, understanding, tolerance and acceptance can emerge. Here are some easy and fun ways to support the effort to spread autism awareness throughout the month of April.

Read Books about Autism: Here are a few of our favorites and why we think they’re great reads.

As part of an initiative to educate families and children about autism, Sesame Street introduced a new Muppet, Julia, who has autism. To further this initiative, they’ve put together an online story, We’re Amazing 1, 2, 3!  In the story, Elmo explains to his friend Abby why Julia doesn’t answer or look at Abby and why Julia covers her ears. This is a wonderful story to share with young children.

My Brother Charlie is written by Holly Robinson Peete and her daughter (and Charlie’s twin), Ryan Elizabeth Peete. Ryan does a great job of explaining the similarities and differences between her twin brother with autism and herself. This book is especially good to read with siblings impacted by autism or to students in Elementary School.

Rules by Cynthia Lord is about a girl that just wants to have a normal life, which feels impossible since her family includes a brother with autism. She attempts to teach her brother the “rules” of life so he can fit in, but she ends up learning more about life through her brother than she ever could have imagined. This book is written for children ages 8 and up. It is a great, quick afternoon read for adults, too!

Share Your Knowledge about Autism: As a parent, therapist or educator impacted by autism, tell your story to others to help them better understand this disorder and boost awareness in the community. Post autism facts and stories on social media. Share your new favorite resource or quote about autism with colleagues and friends via email. 

Wear Autism Awareness Items: Put on a puzzle piece pin or wear blue on World Autism Awareness Day, April 2nd, and throughout the month of April to help “shine a light on Autism.” Share your support by posting a selfie or message on social media and include hashtags like #LIUB or #autismawarenessmonth.

Watch an Autism-Themed TV Show on PBS Kids: Sesame Street, Arthur & Dinosaur Train will all feature autism-themed episodes this April for Autism Awareness Month! Check out this preview for more information.

Walk for Autism: Create or join a team for the Walk for Autism 2017 on May 13th at Soldier Field (and around the country) to help raise funds and awareness. Or donate to an established team - tax deduction forms are available to further support your donation.
