Light it up BLUE!

April is Autism Awareness month. Join the cause and Light It Up Blue! How can you help? On April 1st and 2nd wear BLUE, put a blue light bulb in your light fixtures, or BLOG about!  

I made this on my iPad using the Light It Up Blue App

Early signs of Autism include:

  • No big smiles or other warm, joyful expression by 6 months or thereafter;
  • No back-and-forth sharing of sounds, smiles, or other facial expressions by 9 months or thereafter
  • No babbling by 12 months
  • No back-and-forth gestures (pointing, shoeing or waving) by 12 months
  • No words by 16 months
  • No 2-word meaningful phrases (without imitating or repeating) by 24 months
  • Any loss of speech or babbling or social skills at any age
