LIUB for Autism


April is almost here, Autism Awareness month!

Per autismpeaks.org, Autism can be defined as: “A group of complex disorders of brain development. These disorders are characterized, in varying degrees, by difficulties in social interaction, verbal and nonverbal communication and repetitive behaviors. “You can read more about autism at the following link: https://www.autismspeaks.org/

I really enjoy this month because people all over the world show support in various ways and make people like me and my family feel less alone. Two of my little brothers are autistic and it would be a whole book if I were to summarize the challenges of life as an autism sister…

This year I pledge to Light It Up Blue for Autism on April 2nd. 2016, and I encourage you to do the same. There are several ways to do this. You can either wear blue or switch your light bulbs blue, and then post your picture on social media using the hashtag #liub. Feel free to tag me on your posts, I want to see your blue :)

Live Life Fully,

France Mkb
