Dress Blue for Autism Awareness

March 30, 2012 is World Autism Awareness Day, and the students and staff showed their participation by wearing blue.

Autism is a general term used to describe a group of complex developmental brain disorders – autism spectrum disorders – caused by a combination of genes and environmental influences.

  • A new case of autism is diagnosed every 15 minutes
  • More children will be diagnosed with autism this year than with AIDS, diabetes, and cancer combined.
  • Is it estimated that 1% of the world’s population is affected by autism, or 70 million people.

Thank you students and staff for showing your awareness for autism. The fund collected will go to the Special Needs Foundation of Cayman.
