April is considered Autism Acceptance Month. J. Harvey Rodgers accepts all individuals with autism and other differences. Sometimes, people with autism have difficulties with social skills, communication, relationships, and controlling their emotions. Throughout the next week, we will wear different things to demonstrate that we understand and accept people with autism and their differences.
April 1st (Friday) - April 2nd is Autism Awareness Day. Wear your favorite team jersey or Glassboro gear to show that we work together as a team. Together Everyone Accomplishes More.
April 4th (Monday) - Wear a hat, your favorite color, or favorite outfit. Satoshi Tajiri, the creator of Pokemon, is autistic. He used his unique perspective to create the world of Pokemon.
April 5th (Tuesday) - Wear tie-dye, camouflage, or rainbow colors. Although we come in different colors and have different abilities, we blend together as one.
April 6th (Wednesday) - Wear comfortable clothes. Many people with autism have a variety of sensory needs. This can involve sights, sounds, taste, touch, and balance.
April 7th (Thursday) - Wear blue and "Light it Up Blue" to promote autism awareness. Blue is associated with a calm feeling and acceptance in an otherwise loud and busy world for people on the spectrum.
