Autism Awareness Month encourages everyone to accept and value the diversity of individuals impacted by autism.Bubbles have significance in the early childhood to adult years of those affected by autism. They are used in activities for skill development and the figurative expression of feelings of isolation.

Through understanding bubbles and their many forms for an autistic individual, it is hoped that Blow Bubbles for Autism will help the community understand and accept those impacted by autism.
