Everyone at Spring Hill is excited to celebrate the First Annual Autism Awareness Week from April 11th - April 15th!
Autism is often misunderstood and there are a lot of common misconceptions out there. In order to help students, staff and visitors understand more about Autism, there are myths and facts posted throughout the school.
Panthers are encouraged to show their support and awareness with spirit days culminating with an Autism Walk on Friday, 4/15!:
Monday: "Hats Off" to Autism - Wear a favorite hat
Tuesday: Blend Together for Inclusion - Wear Tie Dye
Wednesday: Special Olympics - Wear red, white & blue
Thursday: "Light Up Your Future" - dress as your future career
Friday: Light It Up Blue - Wear Blue to support Autism Awareness
Every April Autism Speaks celebrates World Autism Month, beginning with the United Nations-sanctioned World Autism Awareness Day on April 2. This year marks the 15th annual World Autism Awareness Day.
Throughout the month, we focus on sharing stories and providing opportunities to increase understanding and acceptance of people with autism, fostering worldwide support. This year, we are committed to creating a world where all people with autism can reach their full potential.
Supporters can participate in World Autism Month by:
- Taking the pledge to create a world where all people with autism can reach their full potential by increasing understanding and acceptance. You’ll receive free information, resources and tools to engage and advocate in your community and learn the impact of your support through Autism Speaks.
- Invite your colleagues, classroom and friends to join our Kindness Campaign and encourage acceptance, understanding and inclusion with daily acts of kindness at school, work or in your community. Together, we can create a world where all people with autism can reach their full potential.
Everyone is encouraged to participate. Whether you have autism, love someone who does, or are looking to support a diverse, accepting and kind community – you’re invited to take the pledge to help create a world where all people with autism can reach their full potential.
