Tuscaloosa City Hall took on a different hue last night for World Autism Awareness Day. Mayor Walt Maddox and the Tuscaloosa City Council signed an official proclamation declaring April Autism Awareness Month in Tuscaloosa.

It was amazing yesterday to see so many people, businesses, and buildings sporting blue to spread awareness for Autism and ASD. Take a look at this Facebook Page for Tuscaloosa Lights it Up Blue for Autism to see people in our community supporting the cause.

Yesterday was great, but it doesn't end there--we have a whole month dedicated to Autism Awareness. What can you do to help?

These are just a few ideas. If everyone took time to learn just a little about Autism and ASD, think about what a massive change that could spark! It starts with you and me, so let's be serious about making a difference for Autism Awareness Month.
