Autism Awareness Ribbon

The puzzle pattern reflects the mystery and complexity of the autism spectrum.

The brightness of the ribbon signals hope—hope that through increased awareness of autism, and through early intervention and appropriate treatments, people with autism will lead fuller, more complete lives.
