April is Autism Acceptance Month, and here at Digitability, we are proud to be a part of the community dedicated to supporting individuals with Autism in and out of the classroom.

Gold clothing or a Rainbow Infinity Symbol

Wear GOLD or sport a RAINBOW INFINITY symbol in support of Autism Acceptance. The Infinity Symbol represents the diversity of the autism spectrum. Using a rainbow or gold infinity symbol is common, and there are ribbons, banners, stickers, and digital widgets that are popular to share during Autism Acceptance Month.

Movies and Film

Watch movies and shows featuring characters with Autism. From Sesame Street for the youngest of students to Pixar’s Short Film “Loop”, more and more movies and television shows are showcasing people with Autism. More and more, we are seeing actors who actually have autism portraying these roles. Authentic representation of the Autism community by mainstream media is an effective tool to support and promote acceptance and inclusion and celebrate diversity.
