Calls to Action

April 2012

We are debuting a new video this week that was created by Option G and Autism Speaks. It tells Mattias’ story of being a brother to sibling with autism. He talks about what he loves about his brother and also why autism can be hard on his brother Christian.

The video integrates real footage of Mattias along with animation and is a unique way of telling a story. Let us know what you think!!

March Madness took on a whole new meaning for Autism Speaks! We were gearing up to Light It Up Blue for World Autism Awareness Day with exciting intiatives across all of our departments. March also closed out with the release of the CDC's new prevalence numbers that came with a lot of Autism Speaks activity - everything from television appearances, blog posts, newspaper editorials, testimonies, and live chats!

Take a minute to catch up on March!
