This global campaign kicks off Autism Awareness Month, focusing attention on the rapidly increasing disability. Autism now occurs 1 in 68 (1 in 42 boys), according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Maybe someone you love is one of them.
Thousands of iconic landmarks, buildings, hotels, bridges and retail stores join the hundreds of thousands of homes and communities around the entire globe “Light it Up Blue.” You can too!
Here is how you can “Light It Up Blue” at OCC Auburn Hills in April!
* Visit the Raiders Store and The Galley Café in the Student Center to take advantage of some awesome Blue Light Specials when the blue strobe lights are flashing!
* Wear a blue shirt to the Student Life Office in the Student Center and we will give you an autism pencil or sticker!
* Visit the Student Government table in the Student Center and we will give you an autism awareness necklace.
* Employees can take a PDTC class about Autism or join the Diversity Committee to increase your understanding and become a supporter and champion for students with autism.
