Autism-friendly events and educational activities take place all month – one being the 4th annual Fishing for Autism .

That will take place April 27th through the 29th, and all proceeds go to the Autism Spectrum Resource Center.

Landmarks, buildings and communities around the world will light up blue to raise awareness on this World Autism Day.

Currently, 1 in 68 children in the us have an Autism Spectrum Disorder.

Autism receives less than 5% of research funding of many less prevalent childhood diseases.
