Online Media Specialist

Today marks the 8th annual World Autism Awareness Day, an awareness event bringing together autism organizations around the world to celebrate the day with unique fundraising and awareness-raising events. For the 6th year, Autism Speaks is celebrating with the global autism community with Light It Up Blue, a campaign in which major global landmarks will light up blue in support of increased autism awareness. This year, more than 13,000 buildings have joined Light It Up Blue.

Autism currently affects 1 in 68 children in the United States and millions more worldwide. In recognition of the need for increased awarenss about autism, Healthyist team member Blair Humienny has created this infographic. How will you raise awareness?
