HEAL Autism Walk at the Jacksonville Zoo & Gardens on Sunday, April 29th
World Autism Awareness Day can trace its roots back to November 1st, 2007. This is when the U.N first requested that a day be established as World Autism Day. This resolution was passed and on December 18th of 2007, World Autism Awareness Day was established as a holiday on April 2nd of every year. The first World Autism Awareness Day would then take place in the spring of 2008.
Today, Autism Speaks is one of the largest private organizations to raise awareness for autism, to push for further research and to advocate for individuals who may have autism. One of their main projects – and perhaps their largest – is the Light It Up Blue Initiative. This initiative is observed on World Autism Awareness Day and is designed to spread awareness about this disorder.
