Autism Awareness Month

April is the month for National Autism Awareness. ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder) affects over 1.5 million people in the United States and is considered the fastest growing developmental disorder, averaging a 17% growth rate per year.

Chances are you know someone personally with Autism or have a close family member or friend who does. The noticeable differences are a lack of communication and interaction. Luckily, an early diagnosis can lead to an early intervention, which is why it is so important to create awareness so that there is special help provided for our loved ones in need.

The Autism Awareness Puzzle image has become the most recognized symbol for Autism and therefore is encouraged to be worn as a display of support. Display your support with our Autism awareness badge reels. Be proud to know that the manufacturer donates 10% of the proceeds to the Autism Speaks Foundation for this special badge reel.

We also have two different colored style Autism Awareness lanyards to wear proudly in support for the month of April or all year long. Make a statement, show support and have a fabulous accessory to display your credentials. Would make a great gift for teachers and educators!
