April is Autism Awareness Month
Thursday, April 2nd is World Autism Awareness Day. Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) is a neurological disorder that seems to affect a person's brain development at a very early age. Characteristics include difficulty with social interaction, verbal and nonverbal communication, and repetitive verbal or physical behaviors. A student diagnosed with ASD may show symptoms along a very broad spectrum, from very severe to very mild. Scientists have yet to pinpoint a definitive cause or develop a cure for ASD.

Autism Speaks, an organization that raises funds for research and awareness, celebrates its international Light it Up Blue Campaign, each April 2nd. Thousands of iconic landmarks, communities, businesses and homes across the globe unite by shining bright blue lights in honor of the millions of individuals and families around the world affected by autism.

To create our own Light it Up Blue event at DHS, we are asking the school community to display the color blue in all manner to raise awareness and support for students with autism. Paint your nails, wear blue clothes, dye your hair! Let's Light Up DHS and show our fellow students we support them in raising awareness about ASD.
 
The Friday Reader's Forum
The Friday Reader's Forum meets every Friday for lunch in B02, next to the library. Bring your lunch; dessert is provided. All students are welcome to come and chat about books and more. See Mrs. Zanconato in the LMC for details.
