Mangano Joins With Autism Speaks To Celebrate Autism Awareness Month

MANGANO JOINS WITH AUTISM SPEAKS TO CELEBRATE AUTISM AWARENESS MONTH

Nassau County Executive Edward P. Mangano joined with several senior members of the Autism Speaks organization to celebrate Autism Awareness Month, on Thursday April 6th at the Theodore Roosevelt Executive and Legislative Building in Mineola. The County Executive presented a proclamation to Stacy M. Parsell, Executive Director of the Long Island Division of Autism Speaks, declaring April Autism Awareness Month in Nassau County. The dome of the Theodore Roosevelt Building was illuminated blue from March 30-April 3, in honor of Autism Speaks’ “Light it up Blue” campaign, and in celebration of World Autism Awareness Day.

“I am proud to partner with Autism Speaks to proclaim April Autism Awareness Month,” said County Executive Mangano. “Together we show support for individuals and families who are affected by autism, by spreading information and promoting awareness.”

According to the Centers for Disease Control, 1 in 68 children are diagnosed with an autism spectrum disorder. That’s why Autism Speaks and World Autism Awareness Day are so important. They increase global knowledge about autism, and spread awareness about the importance of early diagnosis and early intervention.
