World Autism Awareness Day #WorldAutismAwarenessDay
Happy World Autism Awareness Day! Today we are celebrating those with autism, their loved ones, educators, friends, and anyone who wants to encourage autism awareness and acceptance within their communities.
In the below video, we meet the character Julia, Elmo’s friend who has autism. Through play, Big Bird learns about Julia and her autism. He eventually sees that the more we listen and celebrate each other’s differences, the more we can connect and understand each other, making our communities so much stronger.
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
