‘Light It Up Blue’ April 1 and 2 in honor of Autism Awareness Month

Light It Up Blue is the annual kick-off event for Autism Awareness Month, and members of the HISD community are encouraged to wear blue on Friday, April 1, and Saturday, April 2 (Autism Awareness Day), to help spread the word.

Members of Team HISD will observe the month in different ways across the district, including adding blue accents to the Special Education Field Office (SFO). Supporters can also participate by lighting up their homes, campuses, or offices with the color blue.

The Office of Special Education will also be hosting an autism parent meeting at that location (4040 W. Fuqua St., Room 204) from 9–11 a.m. on Friday, April 1.

Parents and campuses can find additional autism resources by clicking here or by following @HISDSPED on Twitter.
