According to the Autism Society, today, more than 3.5 million Americans live with Autism Spectrum disorder. There is no known cause for Autism, however, many believe it is genetics based. There are many different treatment options, but there is no “blanket” treatment for everyone diagnosed. The Autism Society works diligently to ensure the exceptional quality of life for individuals diagnosed with Autism. They focus on areas from birth to adulthood including educational success, to independent living, to fair wages. In recognition of Autism Awareness day on April 2nd, our office is took part in the “Light it up Blue” campaign. “Light it up Blue” was created to spread awareness of Autism and highlights the exceptional abilities of autistic children and adults around the world. Since its creation, schools, museums, retail stores, and thousands of households have taken part by wearing blue and trading their white lightbulbs for blue ones. This campaign has a huge presence on social media outlets as well with hundreds of thousands of #LIUB hashtags and picture of people wearing blue all over Twitter and Facebooks. On April 2nd, Marcellino & Tyson is joined in the campaign by wearing our blue items!
