Will you Go Blue for Autism in 2017?
April is Autism Awareness Month and Autism Queensland is preparing once again for its annual Go Blue for Autism campaign to raise funds and awareness of Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), a lifelong developmental disability that affects one in 100 Australians.
Registrations are now open at www.goblueforautism.com.au for individuals, families, schools, workplaces and community groups to take part in the Queensland-wide event by dressing in blue or hosting Go Blue events on their chosen day in April.
The Go Blue for Autism website also includes news and events from around Queensland as well as promotional materials for download.
The Facebook page Twitter page @Goblue4autism and Instagram page (GoBlue4Autism) drives much of the campaign each year.
Internationally, World Autism Awareness Day is observed on April 2 every year and marks the start of Autism Awareness Month in Australia and Go Blue for Autism in Queensland.
Go Blue for Autism is now in its sixth year.
