[ARCHIVED] April is Autism Awareness Month

autism awareness

Autism is said to be on a spectrum because each individual diagnosed can show very differing features.  

While some individuals need help with very basic skills, like getting dressed and eating, others live their lives without others even knowing they are diagnosed!  

There may be people in this school, your job, or elsewhere in your life, that has been diagnosed on the spectrum. 

Some individuals are not able to talk, and have physical or mental deficits, while others are able to live on their own, go to college, get married, and have a family of their own.  

There are also many individuals that fall somewhere in the middle of the spectrum.  They may struggle a bit with English, but excel in math.  Or they have trouble with academics, but are amazing artists.  

Individuals with autism all have their strengths and weaknesses, just like individuals without autism. 

Braintree has students with autism in every school building, grades and all levels of learning.  

Consider wearing blue today and, if you have a blue light bulb please "Light It Up Blue," to help raise awareness.
