HANDS logoSpecial Education programs are helping to shine a light on autism this month during Autism Awareness Month at IPFW. Autism is the fastest growing disability category in the U.S.; the C.D.C. estimates that one of 88 children in the nation have some form of autism.

This month the doorway near the special education offices will be lighted in blue and there will be a variety of resources and handouts available. Please stop by Neff Hall, Room 240, and pick up some information to share with others. If you would like to be involved, contact Jane Leatherman at 260-481-5742 or

During the month of April, many organizations are highlighting autism awareness and providing resources to families, teachers, and other professionals.
