Using Light It Up Blue to Explain Autism to Classmates

 

Below is a letter from Suzanne Levitt, the owner of Parlights – one of the lighting companies supporting Light It Up Blue this spring by participating in Rosco’s fundraising and awareness campaign.  Once she signed up, she shared her story of how she worked with the educators at her son’s school to use Light It Up Blue as a visual way to explain autism to her son’s school mates.

Our son Carson  struggles with autism, and while he is able to attend public school, making friends has been difficult.  We used Light it up Blue 2o11 to explain autism to the elementary school.  Counselors were brought in and did a marvelous job of explaining the disorder to the kids.  Parlights gave each child a blue light bulb to take home, and we lit our own home, and Carson’s grandparents’ house, with Rosco blue gel.  

The Levitt home and Carson’s grandparents’ home lit up blue on 4/2/2011 using Rosco color filters.

Carson's teachers made that a wonderful day for him, and sensitized his class as well.  I wish all autistic kids could have an experience such as this. 

Thanks,
Suzanne
