April – The Autism Awareness Month

The Autism Awareness Ribbon

The puzzle pattern of this ribbon reflects the mystery and complexity of autism.

The different colours and shapes represent the diversity of people and families living with this disorder.

The brightness of this ribbon signals hope – hope through research and increasing awareness in people like you.
