Autism Awareness month
being celebrated at MLS School

April is Autism Awareness month. The Mohall Lansford Sherwood School is doing their best to support Autism and raise awareness. Last week, the Special Education staff at MLS invited guest speaker, Dr. Jennifer Hefter from Minot State University, to present to the high school students and staff. Dr. Hefter, Special Education teacher, Faye Beck, and student teacher, Kalli Engh, presented information on Autism and Awareness activities. Light it up Blue is the theme for Autism Awareness month from the Autism Speaks Organization.

To kick off Autism Awareness month, the K through 12 students released blue balloons to show their support. Every Wednesday throughout the month, the staff and students are encouraged to wear blue. Teachers who wear jeans on Wednesdays have been asked to donate to the Autism Foundation.

The Special Education staff has planned several activities throughout the month for the students to help raise awareness.

“The first step toward change is awareness. The second step is acceptance.” - Nathanial Branden.

Plan places where your family will meet, both within and outside of your immediate neighborhood. Identify an out-of town contact.
