Monuments Around The Globe Are Turning Blue For Autism Awareness
In support of World Autism Awareness Day, nations across the globe are shining blue lights to raise global awareness of autism.
Every year on the evening of April 1, some 13,000 buildings across the globe shine bright blue in an effort to raise awareness of autism.
Autism is a general term that describes a group of developmental brain disorders in varying degrees — communication difficulties, social and behavioral challenges, and repetitive behaviors.
Seventy-million people around the world are affected by the disorder, and an estimated 1 in 68 children in the U.S. is on the autism spectrum.
