Autism Month

 

April : International Autism Month
Support the Difference  


The Dixville Foundation has been in existence since 1974. Its mission is to support persons with an intellectual disability or an autism spectrum disorder throughout the Eastern Townships.

During the month of April, the Dixville Foundation will distribute a temporary tattoo "support the difference.com" among its partners and the general population. We ask people to proudly wear it to help raise awareness about these individuals and their families who often face psychological, financial and social challenges.

 

The Dixville Foundation invites you to wear the tattoo "support the difference.com" and contribute to awareness by taking a photo and sharing it on Facebook or other social media with a mention of #DIXVILLE FOUNDATION

Be creative with your picture! It could be a selfie, a group or action shot.
