DGH community we did a good job at this last year, but did an AMAZING job 2 years ago – wearing BLUE in recognition of World Autism Day! We are asking students to wear as much blue as possible on Monday, April 3rd. Blue jeans…blue shirts are two great ways to start. World Autism Day is officially Sunday, April 2nd, but we will recognize it on the Monday.
Why Support This Day and Facts to Know
• autism is diagnosed in roughly 1 in 68 children
• around 1/3 of all children diagnosed with autism remain non-verbal
• boys are more likely to be autistic than girls
• no two people with autism are the same
Break out the blue, DGH!
