According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Autism affects 1 in 59 children across the country.
In observance of “Autism Awareness Month,” The Princeton Public Library is speaking loud and clear
with one question: Autism Speaks beautifully, Are You listening?
The library hosted it’s third annual “Autism Awareness Art Wall,” creating a space for kids with autism to express themselves through the arts, while helping the community to learn more about kids with autism.
Although “Autism Awareness Month” ends today, the library’s mission “Autism Speaks beautifully, Are You Listening,” continues.
“A child with autism may communicate in a different way,” said Rebecca Marrs, Children’s Librarian at Princeton Public Library. “They may communicate visually through their art or in other ways. My advice, just be kind and considerate when you think about the actions and reactions of other people.”
The library is encouraging any kids with pictures to drop off a copy and they will be used for next years’ display.
