April is National Autism Awareness Month and more specifically April 2nd is World Autism Day.  

 

We are grateful to Michelle Charriere from Morden for sharing her story as a mother of a son living with Autism.  Michelle urges you to Light it up Blue!  Homes and business' who support those living with Autism may shine a blue light or wear blue to show their support on April 2nd - you don't necessarily have to have a family member of someone who is autistic to be a supporter.   Michelle tells us that 1 in 67 people have a form of Autism. Often families or individuals living with autism won't necessarily ask for help but do appreciate it when it comes.  Bringing a family a meal or making that grocery store meltdown less of a spectacle with understanding instead of judgement are just two other ways to show your support during difficult times.

 

Here is Michelle's story:
