We are advocates for the rights of children with disabilities and the parents who care for them. We support the mission of the Guam Interagency Coordinating Council (GICC), which is a federally mandated statewide interagency group that advises and assists agencies providing early intervention services to young children birth to 5 years old, with or at risk for disabilities and their families. GICC further advises and assists the lead agency in the development and implementation of policies constituting the island-wide system of coordinated services, participating public and private agencies who are involved with early intervention services for children, birth through five years old and their families.
April is Autism Awareness Month. Every year, people from around the world join together in support of Autism Awareness and Acceptance by lighting up their communities or wearing blue.
Please join us in celebrating autism awareness for the month of April by supporting our Light It Up Blue (LIUB) t-shirt fundraiser. This year’s autism awareness month theme is “Embrace Our World”.
By wearing your LIUB t-shirts, you will help spread awareness and understanding of autism, empower autism advocates worldwide to come together as one strong voice, and bring attention to the needs of all people with autism.
All proceeds will go towards the Autism Community Together (ACT) to provide support, education and activities to the families that are affected with autism on our island. Please share this message and the attached flyer.
