Go Blue for Autism

| March 31, 2015
World Autism Awareness Month

Every year on 2 April iconic buildings across Australia and around the world turn their lights blue for World Autism Awareness Day. You can use #LIUB to share your experience across social media.

Autism is a neurological condition that affects among other things the way an individual relates to his or her environment and their interaction with other people. The main areas of difficulty are in social communication, social interaction and restricted or repetitive behaviours and interests.

Autism organisations around the world celebrate World Autism Awareness Day with fundraising events, while many Autism associations are holding awareness-raising events all throughout April. In support of the global initiative, Autism Queensland asks people to Go Blue for the month of April to help support Queenslanders of all ages living with ASD and their families. How will you celebrate?
