QSAC'S Early Intervention Staff participated in the 1st Annual Autism Awareness event, "Illuminate the Unisphere in Pink and Blue for Autism Awareness Month." Despite the gloomy weather, many children with autism, their friends and family came to raise awareness and support for autism.
QSAC had arts and crafts activities, performed a puppet show on acceptance and led story-time.
All in all, it was a great event. With the new official estimate of autism prevalence among children in the United States increased to 1 in 88 many advocates are encouraging April to be re-named Autism Acceptance Month.
