With 1 in 68 children identified with autism, it’s critical that our communities understand autism in order to provide meaningful support for individuals with autism and their families. This April, we’re asking schools, businesses and other interested community partners to help us raise autism awareness by participating in our Change for Autism campaign. Together, we can create change for individuals and families affected by autism by increasing community understanding and support!
How can you raise awareness?
Get creative! There are a number of different ways you can help others understand autism. In the past, schools have shared information about autism over morning announcements or by making posters for hallways and classrooms. Inviting students with autism to help with a campaign is a great idea! What do they want their peers to know? In past campaigns, schools have had great success inviting students with autism to speak to their classmates about autism. Not a school? How about sending a daily/weekly email with information about autism? We have resources, fact sheets, and other ideas to help get you started!
How can you get involved?
The school that raises the most money will win parties for the top 3 classrooms. Classrooms can choose between a pizza party, ice cream party, donuts & chocolate milk, or a movie and popcorn. All participating organizations will be entered in a drawing to win two free registrations to the Autism Society of Wisconsin’s Annual Conference.
