WEAR BLUE TO WORK DAY

Wednesday April 25th

 

Fidelity is wearing blue to raise awareness and increase acceptance of those with autism. Autism Speaks is an organization conducting research to understand more about Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD). This is a affecting 2 million individuals in the US and tens of millions worldwide.

ADS are characterized by social-interaction difficulties, communication challenges and a tendency to engage in repetitive behaviors. However, symptoms and their severity vary widely across these three core areas. Taken together, they may result in relatively mild challenges for someone on the high functioning end of the autism spectrum. For others, symptoms may be more severe, as when repetitive behaviors and lack of spoken language interfere with everyday life. While autism is usually a life-long condition, all children and adults benefit from interventions, or therapies, that can reduce symptoms and increase skills and abilities.
