Community Spotlight 

Today’s virtual interview is with Sue H. from Lohrville, La. 

Autism Speaks: What are you Lighting Up Blue?
Sue H.:
My home!

AS: Why is this important to you?
SH: Why isn’t it important should be the question… My grandson is autistic and I have worked in the field now for 28 years.

AS: Wow that’s great! How are you lighting your home?
SH: We are going to do it ourselves. I have the bulbs!

AS: What other buildings would you like to see lit up?
SH: Every home and every business.

Are you lighting up blue too? Take this quick and easy survey to tell us how!

    I am a mother of two children. I have a son that has PDD-NOS. Hes name is Codie Nutt.. I think that autism awareness has came a long way.. But we are not there yet.. Where i live there is hardly no hope or support. So I am my sons voice. Autism children are all different.. Not one child is the same.. But i do believe that At the end of the road there is “HOPE” I always say that.. I’m trying to get more people involved but they just dont understand.. If anyone knows some way i could change the way people feel please let me know.. I will not give up hope.. In my small town how do i get them involved?
