Students and staff at the Y.A.L.E. School Mullica Township campus joined approximately 900 Mullica Township school district students, parents, and staff for “Blow Bubbles 4 Autism” blowing bubbles and forming a huge “autism awareness ribbon” shape on the school’s field (pictured in overhead view below). “Blow Bubbles 4 Autism” is a worldwide April Autism Awareness Month event intended to help children with ASD “burst out of their bubble of isolation” and interact with their communities.
Advocates, parents, teachers and policy makers across the country and in Canada raised awareness by blowing bubbles at 1:15PM on April 22. Last year, more than 57,202 people took part in the event from 300 locations.
