Beulah Park participates in Autism Awareness Month.

On April 2, Beulah Park Elementary School participated in "lighting up" Beulah Park blue in honor of National Autism Awareness Day. This day was to help increase acceptance for people with autism, as well as increasing awareness of what autism is. According to the Centers for Disease Control, autism affects an estimated 1 in 59 children in the United States today. Because autism is a spectrum disorder, each person with autism has a distinct set of strengths and challenges. The ways in which people with autism learn, think and problem-solve can range from highly skilled to severely challenged. Some people with ASD may require significant support in their daily lives, while others may need less support and, in some cases, live entirely independently.
