April is Autism Awareness month with April 2nd designated as Worldwide Autism Awareness Day. While awareness is important, acceptance and inclusion of autistic individuals is also desperately needed. It’s also needed 12 months and 365 days a year. To commemorate the need for a year long campaign, the #LightItUpWho hashtag was created to keep the momentum going beyond April.
Here are some examples of graphics I have created for Autism Odysseys on Facebook under the #lightitupwho hashtag.
