ATC goes blue for autism awareness month

If you visit American Transmission Co.’s offices, you may notice a bluish tint to the outdoor fountains and blue lights in some areas. It’s all to show support for autism awareness month.

ATC is joining thousands of other organizations across 157 countries striving to bring awareness to autism spectrum disorder during the month of April. Other organizations that have participated include the Sydney Opera House in Australia, Niagara Falls in Canada, The Great Pyramids of Giza, The Freedom Tower in New York and Milwaukee’s U.S. Bank building.

Autism, or autism spectrum disorder, refers to a broad range of conditions characterized by challenges with social skills, repetitive behaviors, speech and nonverbal communication. There is not one autism but many subtypes, and each person with autism can have unique strengths and challenges.

ATC is proud to help sponsor events geared toward supporting individuals with autism and their families. ATC is also proud to offer programs and support for employees who know or care for someone with autism.
