April is Autism Awareness and Acceptance Month


From Autism Nova Scotia:

For over a decade more than 600 cities, 45 countries, and 3000 structures have celebrated World Autism Awareness Day by lighting schools, businesses, and public buildings in blue light in efforts to shine a light on autism.

This year Autism Nova Scotia is asking you to help us carry on this tradition in a time where your visual and online support is more important than ever.

World Autism Awareness Day is officially April 2nd, but with the Easter celebrations occurring at the same time, we ask you to keep your Shine Blue displays through to the 3rd. April has a variety of activities and events across the province. These events promote understanding, acceptance, and inclusion. We hope you will join us by participating on social media and creating your own events or #ShineBlueNS displays.
