Junior Ambassadors

Childhood is where we form many of the habits that we carry throughout our lives.

It is important to teach kids how a simple act of KINDNESS can impact others. We ask teachers and parents to encourage them to ask questions when they don’t understand something and that it is OK to be different.

Acts of Kindness

During the School Day

It’s amazing how quickly word travels in schools. Let’s give them something to talk about!

DECORATE

Hang posters in the halls to let everyone know April is Autism Awareness Month. Take it a step further: Organize an awareness-themed, classroom door decorating contest – winning class gets a pajama day! 

Be inspired by our bulletin board displays>>

READ ALL ABOUT IT

Choose a kid-friendly book about autism to read to your class or a younger class and pass out Kids Booklets for fun Autism Awareness activities.
