If you are in Newcastle tonight after 7pm, cast your eyes towards the grain silos across the harbour. GrainCorp will be bringing some blue to the port by lighting up the silos in support of Autism Awareness day.
The display will continue each night between 7pm and midnight over the long weekend.
The hope is that the display will create discussion about Autism and the effect it has on the individuals, their families and friends, and the wider community. The current estimates are that 1 in 100 children are diagnosed with ASD. Sadly there is still a lot of misunderstanding about what it is and how it changes the lives of people.
