Autism Awareness Month is a time to educate your community about autism and Light It Up Blue! Spreading autism awareness in schools is a great way to celebrate April and promote inclusion and acceptance in the classroom and beyond.

The Puzzle Piece Project Tool Kit is a fun and interactive educational tool kit for grade levels K-12 designed to increase students’ understanding of autism during Autism Awareness Month.  Developed by a special education teacher for teachers, the tool kit includes age-appropriate lesson plans, extended activities, materials and relevant internet resources.

I Am Going On A Journey

I am going on a journey,
Won’t you come along?
I need someone to help me.
A person big and strong.

I’m walking on my journey

But my feet are very small.
Can you stand beside me,
And catch me if I fall?

At times when I can’t keep up

With life and all its fears,
Can you put me on your shoulders
And wipe away the tears?

When the steps I take are not big enough

And it’s hard for me to grow
I know I can depend on you
To let me take it slow.

I’m going on a journey,

Please, won’t you walk with me?
I need someone who understands
The place where I should be.
