Celebrating Differences: Supporting those with Autism in Yuma through Community Engagement

Autism is a developmental condition that affects communication and socialization abilities, with a range from mild to severe. One out of 36 children in the United States is diagnosed with the condition. To promote acceptance and celebrate differences, people around the world recognize World Autism Awareness Day.

In Yuma, a local non-profit organization is working to support those affected by autism in the community. Their efforts include integrating members into the community, assisting with job searches, and participating in Special Olympics events. Francisco Medel, Residential Manager at Our Choice Human Services in Yuma, emphasized the importance of including individuals with autism in community activities.

One way to show support for autism awareness is by wearing the color blue, which symbolizes calmness and acceptance. Additionally, making a donation, attending an awareness event or offering support to someone you know who is affected by autism are other ways to promote acceptance and celebrate diversity. By coming together and recognizing the unique qualities of individuals with autism, we can promote acceptance and celebrate diversity.
